AURORA, Colo. — A boy wearing a clown mask was caught harassing middle school students in Aurora and police don't consider it a laughing matter.
The Aurora Police Department tweeted Tuesday that they were seeking the identity of a man wearing a clown mask seen harassing students near Horizon Middle School.
Police shared a photo of the creepy clown and said the kid was chasing students walking to and from the school on Monday and Tuesday.

In the tweet, police said, "This sort of Harassment WILL NOT be tolerated." They encouraged anyone with information on the man's identity to call police.
However, a short time later, police said the principal of Horizon Middle School nabbed the juvenile and called police, who gave him a ride home.
Police said no charges will be filed, but they say they talked to him about not being a bozo.
