“Killer Clown” Craze Threats Made in Escalon


ESCALON, CALIFORNIA – SOURCE:  Escalon Police Department.

On the morning of 10/6/2016, It was brought to the attention of the Escalon Police Department that a specific threat was made against Escalon High School via Instagram. 


The posting stated that a subject would be coming to Escalon High School to kill students. 

It appeared to be liked to the “Killer Clown” craze, but was taken seriously.

The Instagram account and posting were traced back to a 16 year old Vista High School student, who will not be named. 

Detective Hardgraves arrested the student, who was subsequently booked into the San Joaquin County Juvenile Hall for making terrorist threats and causing a false emergency to be reported.
