Police detectives in Norwich are conducting a search for two Oompa Loompas who attacked a man outside a kebab shop on Thursday.
The 28-year-old victim of the assault suffered black eyes, cuts and bruising. He told investigating officers that his assailants had orange faces and green hair, identical to the Oompa Loompas featured in the classic 1971 Gene Wilder movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. In the film Wonka uses the orange-faced midgets as slave labour to manufacture his delicious treats.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the attack which happened outside a fast food establishment on Prince of Wales Road, Norwich last Thursday. Anyone spotting an Oompa Loompa can call Norfolk Police direct, or report the sarcastic dwarves to Crimetoppers.
