CONCORD (KRON) — A Bay Area mother witnessed a man in a clown suit attempting to snatch her 1-year-old baby girl at a bus stop in Concord.

On Wednesday afternoon, a mother holding her baby girl walked up to a bus stop where a clown was sitting. The mother, with her baby in her arms, sat down next to the clown at the bus stop.

The clown then started to smile at the mother and her baby. The mother did not think anything of it, other than the man was just being friendly, she told KRON4’s Haaziq Madyun.

The clown then reached out for the baby girl and attempted to grab her as she was in her mother’s arms.

The mother quickly tugged back and kicked the clown with the boots on her feet. The clown then ran away.

The mother called 9-1-1 and Concord police responded to the scene.

Officers arrived to the scene but the clown had fled on foot.

Officers are now searching the area for the clown.

The clown is described as a white male with blue eyes and wearing a partial clown getup including a blue wig, a rainbow and a polka dot suit but with tennis shoes and without a painted face.

KRON4’s Haaziq Madyun first spoke with the mother of the 1-year-old baby girl and Concord police. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
