It may seem like the nightmare for some over the secularization of England, but police are hunting down Jesus this week. It appears that a man dressed as Jesus for Halloween and attacked another man dressed as a “Jedi Knight” — leaving the second man with a broken ankle.
There was no turning of the other cheek in this “fancy dress” party. Jesus appears to have started the fight with a punch in the face. It is not clear if Jesus was taunted by the Jedi to “Try Not: Do or Do Not.” Jesus did.
The assault at the Dundee University Student Association headquarters led police to issue the following notice: “Officers would like to trace a man described as in his mid- 20s, about 5ft 10 and medium build, with long brown hair, a beard, and wearing long robes as a fancy dress costume.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, quoting reference CR/28667/17 . . . though asking people to call if they have seen Jesus could be something of a problem.
