Police: Knife-wielding man in ‘Joker’ makeup menaced teens

HADDON, N.J. (AP) — A man who had raised concerns by walking around a southern New Jersey town dressed as “The Joker” while clad in the movie character’s makeup is now accused of “menacingly waving” a pocketknife at some teenagers as he drove past the group. Authorities say 25-year-old Assoumou Diby, of Haddon Township, was arrested on a weapons charge shortly after the incident occurred Tuesday. It wasn’t known Thursday if he's retained an attorney. Camden County prosecutors say several people had contacted Haddon police about the man in recent days, but authorities said he wasn't breaking any laws just by dressing as the character.
