Police hunt for men dressed as Oompa-Loompas after attack on 28-year-old as he left kebab house
Man was left with cuts to his face, nose and lip, as well as two black eyes
Police are now hunting the two men dressed as the fictional factory workers
Two men dressed as Oompa-Loompas from the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory are being hunted by police after they allegedly attacked a man on a night out.
The pair - who had painted orange faces and dyed green hair and were wearing hooped tops like the characters in the 1971 musical film - are said to have attacked a 28-year-old man as he left a kebab shop in the Prince of Wales Road nightclub area of Norwich, Norfolk.
Norfolk Police said the man was left with cuts to his face, nose and lip, as well as two black eyes, after being confronted by the fictional factory workers at around 3.20am on Thursday.
The two Oompa-Loompas were with another man and a woman with dark hair who had a dress split at the side.
But a Norfolk Police spokesman said it was believed that only the Oompa-Loompas took part in the attack.
The victim was initially pushed to the pavement by one of the fancy dress characters from the films, adapted from the 1964 Roald Dahl children's book.
As he got up, police said he was then hit on the head, fell to the pavement a second time and was hit again.
Norfolk Police are appealing for witnesses.
A spokesman said: 'Perhaps they were taking part in a Christmas event. They may have been at a fancy dress party.

Perhaps the Oompa Loompas mistook the victim for the notorious Arthur Slugworth, president of Slugworth Chocolates Incorporated, and would be corporate spy and thief of the Everlasting Gobstopper.
We live in strange times.
(Aren’t Oompa Loompas just orange Smurfs?)
I hope they can find them before they disguise themselves.
You guys have all your midgets and dwarfs accounted for?
Kebabs are disgusting. (just thought i’d throw that in there)
Real men don’t dress like Oompa-Loompas
Kebabs ARE disgusting.
I always preferred kabobs. (heh)
We are good here at the Compound.
Don't know about The Keep.
Clockwork Orange is finally here!
Does Charlie Crist have a good alibi?
I knew that times have been tough for the Oompa-Loompas ever since Wonka moved the factory to Mexico. I had now idea that things were this bad, though.
Here’s the latest G2 on Mexico ...
“Mexican Narcoterrorist Region May Abandon Catholicism for Islam”
This could adversely affect his nomination to SoS...
What?...did they just blend in with the crowd?
As if this year wasn’t already weird enough...
Wrong and wrong. . . .
That's "Gravitationally Challenged"
Begs the question, since it’s not ok to hit girls, even if they hit you first. Is it proper to strike an Oompa-Loompa, in self defence or otherwise?
From the story...
“It is not the first time that Oompa-Loompas have had a brush with the law.
A man dressed as one of the characters was allegedly involved in a brawl during a fancy dress evening at a Welcome Family holiday park in Dawlish, Devon, in May 2009.”
