‘Is that Chris Kamara?’ Attempted burglary e-fit gets unexpected reaction

He was also compared to one of the village people

A police e-fit appeal caused an unexpected reaction on social media when several people likened the suspect to Sky Sports’ witty presenter Chris Kamara… Unbelievable Jeff!

If anything, it’s hoped the extra attention will help police find the suspect quickly.

As previously reported, police released an e-fit of a man who pushed past a woman as he tried to break into a house on Trinity Road in Cleethorpes at around 10pm on Thursday, June 13.

The woman then shouted at the man, forcing him out of the house and preventing any theft.

After the e-fit was published several people likened the image to Kamara. The man was also compared to one of the village people and a Nintendo Wii character.

Anyone with information should contact Humberside Police on 101 quoting log number 641 of June 13.
