Sesame street was this morning cordoned off by police after a serious sexual assault on one of its cast members.
Police were first called to Sesame Street in the early hours of this morning after reports of a large drunken yellow bird shouting abuse, intimidating female crew and being a general nuisance.
It wasn't until after the large yellow fiend was taken away at gun point that the unconscious, twisted, soiled body of Elmo was discovered near Burt and Ernie's with a confused Mr Snuffleupagus' proboscis knuckle deep in red furry Elmo anus.
Elmo and Mr Snuffleupagus are currently being treated at the Jim Henson hospital for the wretched and are said to be doing well.
Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with this indecent.
