Three men arrested over Norwich Oompa Loompas attack

Three men have been arrested after an attack involving two men dressed as Oompa Loompas from the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

A 28-year-old man was attacked by three men and a woman as he left a kebab house on Prince of Wales Road, Norwich, on 27 December.

Two of the men had painted orange faces and dyed green hair.

Police said two men in their late teens and one in his early 20s were arrested on Saturday on suspicion of GBH.

The victim suffered cuts and black eyes, according to Norfolk Police.

The men, all from the North Walsham area, have been released on bail until March.

Oompa Loompas were created by Roald Dahl in the 1964 children's book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and appeared in two film versions of the book.
