The teenage boy attacked by a clown in Rotherham has re-lived his ordeal.

Owen Russell, aged 17, of Anston, needed stitches after being struck over the head with a tree branch by a clown prowling the streets of Dinnington as part of the ‘killer clown’ craze sweeping the country.

The teenager was out with friends when he first spotted the clown, who he said had a ‘sinister laugh’.

Owen suffered a gash to the side of his head, which left him covered in blood, when the branch was thrown towards him.

A police investigation is underway.
