Police seek Oompa Loompas in connection to attack. No, seriously.

Life can be stranger than fiction a lot of the time and here’s one that made us sit up and yell, ‘What?!’

Police in Norwich are searching for suspects in the assault on a 28-year-old man outside a kebab house in Prince of Wales Road last Thursday (December 27, 2012). What makes this different is that two of the men were dressed as Oompa Loompas from the children’s classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

The Oompa Loompas were Willy’s little friends (pictured above) that make all the sweets when he saved them from something bad in their homeland. They have orange faces, green hair and striped tops just like the attackers.

If you know of any Ooompa Loompas who may have been in the area last Thursday we urge you to contact the police.

Doopitydoo indeed!
