The shadowy figure was apparently spotted lurking on wasteland in Shirecliffe according to a Facebook group devoted to clown sightings in Sheffield.
The page, which has more than 10,000 fans, said the clown was spotted last night.
A user wrote: "We was driving home tonight at around 10:20pm near Shirecliffe. (we saw him) "on some wasteland just stood looking at passing cars."
It comes after we revealed yesterday how a Sheffield Wednesday supporting clown on a mobility scooter had been filmed whizzing through the city.
