Armed with nothing but crayons and their imaginations, a trio of crime-fighting tots have joined the efforts to catch a Connecticut biker who fled an accident scene.
The Berlin Police Department on Wednesday released a series of colorful stick-figure suspect sketches drawn by children who witnessed a one-vehicle motorcycle crash — with the creative images going viral on Facebook.
According to the Facebook post, cops responded to the crash on the Berlin Turnpike on Tuesday — but the driver had fled the scene by the time they arrived, jumping over a guardrail and into the woods. He has not been found.
Luckily for officers, three eagle-eyed detectives in a nearby playground saw the whole thing unfold and were able to present police with sketches of the suspect next to a red motorbike.
“I don’t know how to drive,” read one excoriating caption depicting the perp bleeding from the head.
Officers praised the pint-sized Picassos in the post which has been shared more than 300 times.
“Thanks to Myla, Joyce and Julian for their investigative assistance,” police wrote. “If anyone recognizes the man from these detailed drawings, please call Berlin Police at (860) 828-7082.”
A similarly cartoonish sketch helped police ID a suspect accused of stealing cash from a Pennsylvania farmers market in 2018, according to the Chicago Tribune.
