Detectives in the UK are hunting two men dressed as Oompa-Loompas who were responsible for a city-centre assault.

Norfolk Police said a 28-year-old man was left with cuts to his face, nose and lip, as well as two black eyes, after being confronted by people dressed as the fictional factory workers as he left a kebab house in Norwich.

The Oompa-Loompas, accompanied by a man and a woman who were not wearing fancy dress, attacked the victim in the early hours of Thursday on Prince of Wales Road.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said: “Police are seeking a group of four people, two of whom were dressed as Oompa-Loompas, who attacked a male on a night-out.

“Two of the males were dressed as Oompa-Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with painted orange faces and dyed green hair and were wearing hooped tops.”

The spokesman added: “One of the males in the group then pushed the victim to the floor before he got up.

“He was then hit on the head, fell to the floor and hit again.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has knowledge of it should contact PC Hollie Fisher at Bethel Street police station or call Crimestoppers anonymously on (UK) 0800 555111.
