Victim’s concern over ‘odd e-fit’

`A crime victim has criticised a police e-fit of a suspect saying although the thief had an unusual appearance he “didn’t look that odd”. [..]

“The man was a pretty odd-looking character and we didn’t get a good look at his face, but he didn’t look that odd,” Mrs Rule said.

“The man in the picture has half an ear – he didn’t have half an ear. And his moustache wasn’t like that.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone who looks like that in Stalham or anywhere else in my life.”

She added: “Apparently the problem with the moustache was that the police only had long moustaches on their computer so they had to sort of chop it off at the ends.”‘
