Wanted man goes to South Yorkshire Police webpage over weight, hair and Game of Thrones jokes
South Yorkshire Police launched an appeal on their social media site asking for help in locating Ryan James Brough in connection with a number of assaults.
They wanted to hear from anyone who knew where he was as they investigated assaults that allegedly took place between August 2018 and December 2021.
But when officers made the call on their Facebook page, comments appeared mocking his haircut, weight and comparing his appearance to Peter Kay and a Game of Thrones character called Samwell Tarley.
Brough took to the police’s Facebook page to say, “I bet none of you dare meet me at KTC for my first breakfast of the day and say anything to my face. Keyboard warriors.
He then posted a GIF video and added, “Actual footage of me reacting to everyone’s comments. You give me the strength to carry on. Thanks to all my fans.”
