Baytown police have arrested two teens accused of dressing as clowns and chasing people with a stick.

Police were called to Jenkins Park on Crosby Cedar Bayou Road just after 6 p.m. Monday night.

Two victims told officers the suspects were wearing black clothes and clown masks.

Police quickly arrested a 16-year-old and 13-year-old. Both are charged with making terroristic threats.

Both were later released to their parents.
