Texan women mugged by 'cartoon' man

Recommended Posts

Is this the worst police sketch of all time?

This drawing of a suspect wanted in connection with the serious robbery of two women in Texas might just be the worst police sketch of all time.

The Lamar County Sheriff?s Department released the drawing ? which they stress is a composite sketch, not a likeness ? to help track down the man who allegedly mugged two women at knife point on Thursday.

But it seems unlikely that the sketch will aid the police in their inquiries given that it appears to depict a confused-looking cartoon man.

The suspect the police sketcher was trying to draw fits the victims? description of a man ?6 foot tall or a little taller, approximately 25 to 30 years old with no or very thin facial hair, and a muscular build.?

The description adds: ?His nose was straight with no flare in the nostrils. He has short black hair and a round face, with tattoos covering both arms and a tattoo on the left side of his neck.?

The authorities also said: ?The victim was adamant about the tattoo on his neck having a lot of red ink in it.?

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Lamar County Sheriff?s Department.

Mugger Caught


A police sketch that was publicly mocked for its resemblance to a Muppet actually helped nab a suspect earlier this week in Texas.

The drawing of the man was based on the description given to a forensic artist by two unidentified victims: a 77-year-old woman and her 57-year-old daughter, who were robbed at knifepoint in broad daylight.

The drawing quickly became the laughingstock of the Internet for its resemblance to a cartoon (chubby cheeks, a too-thin lip line, dopey eyes).
