A man who was working a haunted barn attraction during Halloween who goes by the name Shakes the Clown has been charged with groping two women at a holiday haunted house. Judging from his mugshot, and his clown mask, this should be of no surprise.
An excerpt from The Smoking Gun: According to a criminal complaint, the victims had their breasts pawed last month while waiting to enter a “haunted barn” at a campground in Janesville. Police had been summoned to the scene following reports that women were “touched inappropriately by a clown.”
Two women told cops that a “clown with green hair” first approached them and asked, “Do you want me to Donald Trump?” While making this inquiry, the clown “made a hand gesture towards their vaginas and made a squeezing motion,” the complaint alleges.
Both women said that they “were not touched at that time,” but had been “caught off guard by what the clown had said and found it inappropriate.”
Following the “Trump” comment, the clown allegedly grabbed and squeezed the breast of one woman, and then did the same thing to her companion. The clown’s actions, the women told police, left them feeling “violated and uncomfortable.” Neither victim, investigators noted, gave “the clown consent to grab her breast.”
