Home's Halloween display so scary neighbours call police

A Halloween decoration hanging in the window of a couple’s home is so scary that it prompted calls from concerned neighbours and at least one plea for police assistance.

The sign reading “Help Me,” which appears to be written in blood, is part of North Dakota resident Becky Muhs’ display for her favourite holiday.

WDAY-TV reports Ms Muhs and her husband began getting messages from neighbours over the weekend asking if they were OK.

One neighbour even dialled 911, leading to a police officer visiting their West Fargo home.

Ms Muhs says the incident ended in a laugh and that the officer didn’t ask her to take the sign down.
