A 15-year-old girl seized on the national scary clown craze and posted on Facebook a violent threat to residents of many Twin Cities communities, and police in one of those cities said they have arrested the juvenile.

“Kroacky Klown has been identified and charges will be pursued for their threats,” Hopkins police said in its own notice late Tuesday on Facebook.

Police Sgt. Mike Glassberg said his department received information via Facebook that Kroacky Klown posted: “Should I come to Hopkins and kill?”

The girl was tracked down and identified as being from Bloomington, Glassberg said. Police were withholding her identity because she is a juvenile.

“The suspect had used her younger sister’s cellphone to create the fictitious Facebook account,” the sergeant said. “The juvenile told police her intent was to scare her boyfriend, but the situation got out of control and went viral.”

Glassberg said that another Kroacky Klown threat on Facebook by the girl read: “If you live in the following Minnesota cities you are in danger: Bloomington, Richfield, Minneapolis, Brooklyn Park, St. Paul, Rochester, Apple Valley, Plymouth or HOPKINS. My clown brothers are in every city listed.”
