Cop: what did the men look like? Man: well they were short and had green hair and faces painted orange! Cop: so you were assaulted by Oompa Loompas? Man: yes! This is a hypothetical conversation that could've arose when the victim of a random attack was being questioned by authorities. 

Last week, a 28-year-old man hailing from Norfolk, England claimed that his assailants were masked to resemble the famous Oompa Loompas from the classic film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

There were four muggers (including a woman) in total, two of which were donned in dwarf gear. The attack took place in a city center, my guess being it was at night when not too many civilians were present. The victim sustained only minor injuries, including two black eyes and several cuts to his face.

One of the males in the group…pushed the victim to the floor before he got up, a spokesman for Norfolk police said. He was then hit on the head, fell to the floor and hit again.

It wasn't reported whether or not anything was stolen during the attack and police are still searching for the perps. This is another puzzle that needs solving!
