ROSEVILLE, Mich. – Two 18-year-old women dressed as clowns were arrested Thursday night in Roseville after allegedly chasing two 14-year-old girls.
Jamie Salinis and Elandra Sledge, both of Roseville, were charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
According to police, the clowns jumped out of a vehicle in the 18000 block of Minnesota Street and chased the girls, saying they were going to kill them.
The girls ran away and went to the Roseville Police Department at about 9 p.m.
Officers went to the area and found "two idiots" dressed as clowns and they attempted to flee on foot, police said. A foot chase ensued and both individuals were taken into custody.
Police said the women were dressed in clown regalia from head to foot and stated they thought it was "funny to terrorize unsuspecting pedestrians."
