Police in Glendale, Arizona are searching for a man accused of chasing children while wearing a Guy Fawkes mask and wielding an ax.
The Glendale Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect who showed up at San Martin Apartments on Wednesday and chased several terrified children who were playing outside in broad daylight.
Police say they got a 911 call at around 1:45 PM on Wednesday, May 17, saying a tall man with a thin build and what was initially described as a clown mask jumped over a fence into the apartment complex at 6800 North 67th Avenue.
via ABC 15:
An everyday walk home from school turned into a scene straight out of a horror movie for a group of Glendale boys. Whether the man was actually trying to hurt someone or is just playing a sick joke he is still out there.
Authorities later found a creepy mask and ax abandoned in the area. They released the photo above in hopes that someone would come forward with information. No description has been given yet of the man. No injuries have been reported in connection to the incident.
“I thought I was going to die today,” said Dominic who was chased.
