GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Glendale Police Department released a couple of 911 calls that were made when a man in a mask was threatening kids in a neighborhood with a weapon.

A boy on the 911 call told the dispatcher that the man yelled, "You better run or I'm going to kill you" while in an apartment complex near 67th and Glendale avenues on May 17. He described the suspect as a clown with a knife.

"He got chased yesterday and we seen [sic] him screaming like 10 minutes ago," the caller told the dispatcher.

No one was hurt.

After police searched the area, they found a mask and a hatchet in a nearby field. Glendale police released photos and it appears the mask was more like a Guy Fawkes mask than a clown mask.

However, no suspect was found. 

Apparently, the masked man had terrorized kids before.

"We had the clown in the back. Glendale PD had already come through once and the kids say he's back," a woman told a 911 dispatcher.

No arrests have been made.
