(Newser) – Bizarre but true: UK police are looking for two men who allegedly assaulted a 28-year-old man—while both were dressed as Oompa-Loompas. The Telegraph reports that they had dyed green hair and orange painted faces, and were joined by a woman in a dress and a man in normal clothes. The four allegedly assaulted the victim in question in Norwich, knocking him to the ground and leaving him with two black eyes late last week. "Perhaps they were taking part in a Christmas event," says a police rep. "They may have been at a fancy dress party." Click for more weird crimes.

from the article... "Other fancy address attackers include two men dressed as Elvis Presley and Ozzy Osbourne who were convicted last year, of assaulting a police officer in a Wyatt Earp costume." lol - you just can't make this stuff up...Truth is stranger then fiction because fiction has to make sense.
