‘Hello, police? I’ve just spotted that Bloaty Head character from Theme Hospital.’

At least, that’s what people might be saying if they keep an eye out for this wanted criminal – who has been likened to a 1990s video game graphic or Lego character.

The bizarre e-fit shows the man’s head go narrow at the top, with a mop of hair that looks like it could be removable.

It has attracted a lot of attention, with others saying he looked like a character from Drop Dead Fred or Grand Theft Auto.

Northamptonshire Police issued the image to try to catch a distraction burglar who knocked on a woman’s door and told the occupant he needed to check the pipes due to ‘sewage issues’.

The force said she was in the back garden with the man in Vernon Walk, Northampton, when another person entered the property and stole cash between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Thursday.

One Facebook user, Kriss Manley, said: ‘Looks like he is the star of the Lego movies.’

Another user, Christopher Ellingham, said: ‘Distraction burglary….was his face the distraction?’

Ursula Ribeiro, also on Facebook, said: ‘Northamptonshire Police win the ‘I just came here for the comments’ award again!

‘They certainly know how to cheer up a dull Friday…thanks for the giggles!’

Police have asked anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit image to come forward.
