UPDATE: The mother of a 12-year-old boy with autism said the "creepy clown" who scared drivers on Laburnum Avenue in Henrico County was her son -- and he is sweet, not creepy. Holly Brown said her is a huge Stephen King fan and recently got the Pennywise clown costume for Halloween. Read more.

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A mother who doesn't want to be identified said she was driving in Henrico County Monday when she and her teenage daughter spotted a ‘creepy clown.’

She said they spotted the clown around 5:00 p.m. while traveling on Laburnum Avenue near Creighton Road.

In a video taken by the woman's daughter, you can see the clown poke its head out a passenger side window, and start to wave and point.


Henrico Police tell CBS 6 they haven't received any calls regarding clown sightings, but the mother said it left her feeling on edge after seeing the different stories on clown sightings around the country.

"A little nervous because my daughter kind of freaked out about it but I told her some people like to play games," said the mother.

The mother reached out to CBS 6 after seeing a story regarding clown sightings in Augusta County, Virginia over the weekend, saying it resembled the clown they spotted in Henrico.
