Police search for Smurfs over alleged assault

POLICE are hoping to find Papa Smurf and three of his Smurf friends after they allegedly attacked a man when he refused to light a cigarette for them.

A 37-year-old Pascoe Vale man was allegedly assaulted after buying cigarettes at a 7-Eleven at about 1am on December 16.

He was approached by a man dressed as a Smurf who asked for a cigarette after leaving the store.

The victim offered the Smurf a smoke but the Smurf insisted he light the cigarette before handing it over.

Police say the man refused and was then assaulted after noticing the Smurf was in the company of three other Smurfs.

The Smurfs appeared to be trying to jump start a white VS Commodore in the car park and had asked for help from a woman before they met the Pascoe Vale man.

Victorian police believe the Smurfs may have vital information about what happened to the victim.

Anyone who has information about the incident should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au.
