Thousands of Denver-area residents have been terrorized recently by a creepy late-night visitor.

A clown wearing a white suit and carrying baloons has been spotted walking down the street after dark in several different neighborhoods during the month of September.

According to the website I'm From Denver, the clown was photographed earlier this week strolling through the Sunny Side neighborhood in the north suburbs.

When the clown was spotted, he repordedly screamed at the witness and ran down the street.

The Colorado sighting is the latest of several disturbing episodes involving clowns who have reportedly terrorized towns across the country.

Luckily, there have been no reports of clowns frightening the public here in Wyoming yet. However, there are several clowns in the Cowboy State who appear at fair, carnivals and other events. .
