CHICAGO – A 26 year old woman named Melissa Reyes, resident of the Englewood neighborhood was walking home at around 7PM when she was reportedly attacked by a mob of angry black teenagers upset over the mysterious clown apparitions around the country.

She also stated that the group of attackers fled after one of them said “oh sh*t bruh, that ain’t a clown, she just wearing hella makeup” – before she lost consciousness a few seconds later.
