The clown craze putting Australia on high alert is intensifying as costumed creeps menace victims with machetes and vigilantes lash out at the pranksters.

Photographs of sinister clowns in all corners of the country have fuelled social media hysteria and prompted ‘clown hunting’ groups to take matters into their own hands.

Facebook posts claim a clown was hospitalised after being king-hit in Sydney – hours after after the ‘Clown Purge Sydney’ ominously warned ‘we are coming for you.’

Meanwhile footage has surfaced of clowns brandishing knives in Melbourne and another striking the bonnet of a car with a machete in Caboolture, north of Brisbane.

Authorities have scaled up their warnings, with NSW and Victoria Police taking aim at the US-born craze as it well and truly takes root in Australia.

It doesn’t speak. It doesn’t juggle. It has balloons but doesn’t hand them out. It probably doesn’t even sleep. It just stands there, haunting our dreams with that sinister smile.
An anonymous man has been striking fear into the hearts of the Northampton, U.K., community by ominously standing around in creepy clown apparel.
The Northampton Herald & Post first reported the sightings earlier this month. The clown has allegedly been spotted all over town, and sometimes is seen carrying a clown teddy.

Sinister ‘Plague Doctor’ stalking city streets baffles and terrifies locals – but who is it?

A mysterious hooded figure has been spotted stalking a city’s streets for months – but nobody seems any the wiser about who it could be.
Dubbed ‘the Plague Doctor’, the eerie figure has been seen numerous times all over Chester, in Cheshire, usually at night.
Whoever it is doesn’t speak or make a sound, and simply wanders the streets silently, reports the Chronicle.
They have caused quite the stir in Chester, as many people have taken to social media to ask who might be behind the cloak.

If you came across this Ronald McDonald on the street, you would not be lovin’ it.

According to Redditor Emblematic_, this Ronald statue was looming over passersby in a McDonald’s with a Conference Centre in Bateman’s Bay in New South Wales, Australia.

The once cheerful giver of burgers and fries looks ominous and downright creepy with the dingy glow of the light seemingly coming up from the floor below him like he’s about to tell us a spooky campfire story. It’s almost like he’s summoning the dark clouds in the photo.

If you weren’t afraid of clowns before, perhaps now is the time to start.

But people on the Internet are coping with their fear in the only way they know how: with a hilarious Photoshop battle.

Lurking clown arrested in Kentucky woods near apartment block as US ‘creepy clown’ fears spread
A man dressed as a clown has been found by police lurking in a wooded area near an apartment block as several further “creepy” clown sightings have been reported across the US.
Jonathan Martin, 20, was arrested and charged with wearing a hood or mask in a public place, disorderly conduct and two outstanding warrants for non-payment of fines and failure to appear in court.
He was found by police at 1am on Friday morning in Middlesboro “in full clown costume”, crouching among trees.
“Upon stopping and seeing the clown,” Mr Martin started running towards a vehicle at the apartment complex, the arresting officer stated.
In that part of Kentucky, the law states: “No person shall, while wearing any hood, mask or device whereby a substantial portion of the face is hidden or covered so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, enter, be or appear in any public place within the city.”
