Police Are Hoping A Man Dressed In Penis Costume Will Help Them Find Attacker

An attacker in a group of people allegedly assaulted a man to the point where he needs surgery to recover from a dislocated and cracked knee, a shattered shin bone, and torn ligaments.

Police are hoping a man dressed in a gigantic penis costume will help them locate the presence of  a suspect accused of a brutal assault over the weekend, The New York Daily News reported.

As a reminder, some British people drink a lot, which may be why, in a group of about ten men out and about in the wee hours of Sunday morning, one of them was wearing the phallic outfit—and another in the group was the attacker. 

"The costume worn by one of the group is very distinctive and we think anyone who encountered them during the evening would recall it,” said Detective Constable Gaynor Burt to the Telegraph.

Police believe that the group was possibly a bachelor party.

The attacker in the group allegedly assaulted a man to the point where the victim needs surgery to recover from a dislocated and cracked knee, a shattered shin bone, and torn ligaments, according to the Daily News.

"While the nature of costume worn by one of the group might be amusing to some,” said Burt, “we are hoping that mentioning it will jog someone's memory and assist in tracing those responsible for what was a serious assault that has left the victim with long-term consequences.”
