A boy in Michigan is recovering today after he was attacked by a man dressed as a clown.

The incident happened around 7:00 p.m. Tuesday night in Sterling Heights, Michigan. 

Sterling police say a clown approached seven-year-old Just Buechler and attempted to cut him with a what he believes was a butter knife. 

The boy then came home and told his mother who called 911 and reported the attack. 

Justin says the clown had red hair, red nose, and a mask. 

"He grabbed my wrist, and then he used the other hand to...he dragged the knife down my arm slowly," said Justin.

Justin's attack was one of two calls that Sterling police received Tuesday night. Two women also reported three clowns lunging at them with baseball bats as they were walking down the street. Sterling authorities say they are still investigating the scene and that these clown antics are no loner amusing.
