Well now we have an answer - he's behind bars, after an escaped convict wore the not-so-subtle stripy costume to carry out knifepoint attacks.
Jon Stephens, 27, had been spotted on CCTV carrying out the robberies but was initially unable to be identified because he'd worn various costumes while carrying out the attacks, including the Where's Wally outfit.
However, the Mid Devon Gazette reports he was eventually caught after a female shopowner refused to comply with his request to hand over money, instead chasing him off her premises.
He pleaded guilty to four robberies and was sentenced to eight years at Exeter Crown Court.
