Police in England have released this suspect sketch, and we just can’t get over it

Believe it or not, this photo is an actual e-fit issued by the Cheshire Police – to capture a suspect.

Does this guy look familiar to you? Perhaps it’s his computer-generated locks putting you off? Or that sketchy beard supposedly scribbled in MS Paint.

The computer-generated image (aka e-fit: Electronic Facial Identification Technique) was posted online to track down a man who pulled out a knife while in a Macclesfield pub back in 2016.

The man was described as being in his late 30s with “short black hair, a dark coloured beard and a slim face.”

The image was posted online and has become the force’s most publicized e-fit, with people posting their own terrible MS Paint-esque creations on social media.

Some have even gone to the trouble of dressing themselves up like the suspect or spotting him out in public.

David Cameron was given a Cheshire e-fit makeover.

Wooly Willy is a spitting image of the suspect.

And Phil from the popular board game “Guess Who” looked like he could pass as the suspect’s identical twin.

Don’t worry, this guy is locked up for life. Can’t be him.

The resemblance is uncanny!

In all seriousness, though, e-fit images are used when detectives need the public to help them locate a suspect. When the force doesn’t have a recent picture on hand, they start getting creative.

Below you’ll find some of the most creative e-fits to date.

And you thought your Photoshopping skills were bad!
