(NBC) -

Target has quietly pulled some clown masks from its stores and online, out of sensitivity for the 'creepy clown' scare that's spreading across the nation. 

A Target spokesperson told NBC station 'KARE11' in Minneapolis, that there were only a few in-store clown mask options in stores and those are no longer available for purchase. 

Target has also edited down its clown assortment online.

Police in several states, including Minnesota, have been dealing with threats and pranks related to people wearing clown masks.
