    Welcome to the year 2017 where the Police are able to ask us to identify a male by using a picture of a character that could be Jorden with her boobs out …

    For God’s sake Plod .. we WANT and NEED BIGGER pictures and much CLEARER pictures! I’m sure that this character image was caught on many more CCTV systems and you had a better selection to use.

    IF you put both of your legs behind your head and stick your right index finger up your left nostril ….. that image would then look like ME!

    The Information in this article is incorrect the man attacked had three stab wounds on to his leg and two to his back/side one of which penetrated his lung. He was in hospital for two nights. The attacker was wearing a green jacket as seen in the cctv not a grey hoody… if the correct information is given they may have a better chance of finding him.
