A Wisconsin couple thought it’d be a good idea to roam around their neighborhood and scare people while dressed up as clowns but allegedly left someone very important at home — their 4-year-old child.
A 29-year-old man and a 26-year-old women were taking part in the clown prank in the city of Menasha, according to authorities, Fox 6 Now reported.
Menasha police found the suspects involved after getting a report about the suspects dressed as clowns on Oct. 7, the station reported.
The couple was later arrested and faces child neglect charges. According to Fox 6 Now, the woman is at Winnebago County Jail on probation hold.
A 20-year-old man who also took part in the prank was not charged. The child was taken by the Department of Human Services.
