Police in Stratford upon Avon are on the alert for a street robber who bears an uncanny resemblance to children’s much-loved toy, ‘Mr Potato Head’.
A Police Spokesman takes up the story…
‘As ridiculous as this may sound, we are on the alert for a man who bears a striking resemblance to Mister Potato Head.
Out of the 6 people who have been robbed by this man all of them have described him as looking like Mr Potato Head.
This is not a joke.
Over the past six months there have been a number of robberies where cash has been taken forcibly by this character, so we take this very seriously indeed.
If anyone knows this man or has a suspicion as to his identity, we would ask that you get in touch with us as soon as possible.
I would like to emphasis that this is not a joke and advise people NOT to approach this man.’
