Victim describes creepy clown attack in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — It started as a walk down Pikes Peak Greenway Trail.

“We kept saying, ‘identify yourself, identify yourself.’ And usually when we walk, other homeless people that live out there, they identify themselves,” said Juquina Johnson-Stevens, who witnessed her husband’s attack.

Howard Stevens and his wife tell FOX21 one of the men was wearing a clown mask and both were carrying glass whiskey bottles.

“They said nothing. They came at us walking real fast, like they were meaning to in an aggressive manner,” Stevens said.

According to the police report, Stevens punched the man in the mask when he wouldn’t say who he was.

That’s when Stevens got hit the head with the bottles, leaving him bleeding on the ground.

“I didn’t know what to do. I was stunned. And he’s pushing me like, ‘run this way and hurry up and leave’ and I’m like, ‘okay.’ And I go run and call the cops,” Johnson-Stevens said.

Stevens said he now believes his attackers may have been after something.

“I think maybe to steal our medication or our money, or everything they stole from us. Because they went through our tent and a lot of our stuff’s gone. We live in a tent down here,” Stevens said.

“I’m still not scared of clowns. It’s not going to ruin my whole thought on clowns. I mean, I grew up watching the Bozo Show,” Stevens said.

Police are still investigating this case and are asking anyone with information to call CSPD or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-7867 (STOP).
