A gay man from Fort Worth has been accused of frightening local children with his purple helmet.
Larry Sabu, 20, allegedly scared the tots as young as 3 years old, when he visited the Abel Rodriguez children's park in the city, for a go on the slide.
As the homosexual arrived at the facility, all children and their mums could see was a great big purple dome approaching from a south-westerly direction, something that eventually turned out to be Larry's purple helmet.
He had bought it from a local construction shop.
Said Larry "It is a big helmet, probably a lot bigger than most people are used to, but nothing to be scared of! To be fair though, it often brings a tear to the eyes of a lot of my male friends when they see it. They must like the colour purple!"
One mum told us "He had this big purple helmet, and construction boots. And nothing else. I quite fancied him myself, but I understand that he's a Receiver of Swollen Goods."
