For a change, a true story. Policemen in Brazil in a hunt for a thief are embarrassed after an hilarious case of mistaken identity. They were looking for a man responsible or numerous armed carjackings in the town of Guapo. They found clothing – an emblazoned cap & tee-shirt – at the scene of one of the crimes. Immediately, town’s police chief Sergeant Cunhamade made a TV announcement stating that they had an identity for the thief, asking viewers for help in locating the prime suspect, Mr. Harley Davidson.
Standing next to the vehicle, which had been found abandoned with the items of clothing inside, he said “The suspect left a grey T-shirt which he had used to cover his face, and also a baseball cap with the first name Harley, and the citizen’s last name, Davidson. He is probably the man we’re looking for.”
The TV request for help was posted on YouTube, getting more than 300,000 views in one day and provoking very funny comments. For example, one viewer commented “Did Volks and Wagen manage to escape too?” Another one: “This Harley Davidson guy has a set up a shop in my town.” Below, you can add your own comment to help Sergeant Cunhamade .
