A man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he was allegedly spotted wearing a clown mask and taking pictures outside several Central Point schools.

The Central Point Police Department said 21-year-old Michael Richards was taken into custody after police received reports that there were pictures circulating around of a clown holding a sign outside several schools.
