A 37-year-old Pascoe Vale man was approached by the Smurfs after he bought cigarettes from a 7-Eleven convenience store at about 1am AEDT on Sunday, December 16.
A man dressed as Papa Smurf asked for one of the man’s cigarettes and demanded it be lit before it was handed to him.
The man, who told police Papa Smurf had been accompanied by three other Smurfs who appeared by trying to jump start a car at the time, refused to light the cigarette.
He was allegedly assaulted a short time later, but police say it is unclear if the men in fancy dress were the alleged attackers.
“We are trying to piece it all together to determine the exact circumstances surrounding the assault,” a police spokeswoman said.
“Because the men dressed as Smurfs spoke to the man before the assault we are interested in talking to them to find out what happened.”

Video - FireNado!
A stream of 100-foot-high flames ignited deep in the heart of the Australian outback where firefighters have been battling bush fires for nearly a week. This region hasn’t seen rainfall since the end of April.
Chris Tangey, an Australian filmmaker, was scouting locations for a movie shoot near Alice Springs, Australia when he caught this incredible footage.
“I knew within 30 seconds that this was a very unique event, probably globally, making the sound of a jet engine. It just didn’t even look real to us, rare fire tornado flaming spectacular caught on camera in Alice Springs, Australia” Tangey said.
Firenados occur when intense tornado-like ground-level winds come in contact with fire, propelling upwards in a column of warm, rising air. The phenomenon usually lasts for two minutes, but Tangey found himself reveling at Mother Nature’s fury for an astonishing 40 minutes.
“I’ve never seen anything so big; move so quickly in my life. It was awe-inspiring absolutely, and it is something I never expect to see again,” said Tangey.
The most notable other example of a fire tornado, or firenado, emerged from Japan’s Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923.
“The flames closed in from all directions, and then, at 4 p.m., a 300-foot-tall ‘fire tornado’ blazed across the area,” according to Smithsonian.com. “All told, 45 percent of Tokyo burned before the last embers of the inferno died out on September 3.”

Female snake, which was pregnant with 87 eggs and measured over five metres long, is largest ever found in US state.
The biggest Burmese python ever caught in Florida, over five metres (17ft) long and weighing 74kg (11st 9lb), has been found in Everglades national park, the University of Florida said on Monday.
The snake was pregnant with 87 eggs, also said to be a record. Scientists said the python’s stats show just how pervasive the invasive snakes, which are native to south-east Asia, have become in south Florida.

A smoking orangutan at Taru Jurug zoo, where visitors throw lit cigarette butts into primates’ enclosures.
At Indonesia’s Taru Jurug Zoo, a popular orangutan named Tori is being forced to butt out her filthy addiction to cigarettes.
So how exactly does a 15-year-old orangutan gain access to nicotine sticks, one might ask? From the visitors, of course.
The Jakarta Globe reports that zoo management have long tried to stamp out her love for smoking, but visitors continue to assist her by tossing lit cigarettes into her cage.
Tori even puts her fingers to her lips to signal that she wants a smoke. Those who don’t comply get things thrown at them.
Sadly, Tori isn’t even the first orangutan at the zoo to enjoy lighting up. Her parents were also smokers.
Staff at the zoo, with the help of the Center for Orangutan Protection, are finally taking concrete action.
Man logs more than three million miles in his Volvo giving him the Guinness World Record.
It just keeps going, and going, and going. No, it’s the Energizer bunny. It’s Irvin Gordon’s 1966 Volvo P1800S.
Gordon’s small, red two-door has well more than two mil-lion miles (3.22 million km) on the odometer, the equivalent of nearly 1,176 times across the globe. The retired schoolteacher from Long Island hopes to reach the three million mile mark by next year. He only has 34,000 miles (54,717 km) to go.
Gordon, 72, drives his Volvo everywhere. He has held the Guinness World Records mark for high mileage vehicle since 2002 and was the first person to hold that record.
“It’s just a car I enjoy driving,” he said.
He bought his beloved car on June 30, 1966, for $4,150 at age 25. “It was a whole year’s salary,” he said.
Gordon originally wanted the convertible Volvo with air conditioning, but it was too expensive. He paid extra to have an AM/FM radio, though.
“It was $10 extra, and at that time, $10 was a lot. But an AM/ FM radio was a big deal,” he said.
Gordon’s car has just enough room for him and his essentials. His front bumper is filled with pins of his mileage achievements. Even his license plate says “MILNMILER.” And his trunk overflows with the many car parts he thinks he might need when on the road.
“I have a set of everything,” he said. “If I have it, then I am not going to need it.”
Gordon has been taking road trips since he was a kid and continued through his adult years. He says he would just tell his family to pack their things and hit the road. Gordon’s two daughters went on his road trips until they outgrew the red car.
“They just couldn’t fit in the back any more. That is when I bought the station wagon,” he said. “Volvo, of course.”
His odometer doesn’t have enough digits to display the mileage, but Gordon has ser-vice records verifying it.
Now divorced, Gordon takes road trips alone. With trips to Montreal, Texas and Michigan in just the last month, the last leg of his trip should not be too hard. It took him 21 years to reach the first million miles and 15 more years to reach two million (3.22 million km). Gordon averages 85,000-100,000 miles (160,934 km) per year. Most of his trips are for auto shows, but he also takes trips across the country just for a good cup of coffee.
“I have had coffee in every state,” Gordon said.
The avid driver believes in taking care of his car and he doesn’t let anyone else drive it.
“That’s why I bought my girls their cars,” he said.
Jordan Weine is a mechanic at Bay Diagnostic, an auto shop based in Brooklyn and a Volvo expert. He says because Gordon takes care of his car, he is able to get high mileage without much change to the car’s original mechanics. The car still has the original engine, though it was rebuilt twice.
“How high does a redwood grow? If it is not messed with, it will grow,” said Weine, who hasn’t worked on Gordon’s car. “And there are very few redwood trees and the same goes with this. There are very few people that can achieve three million miles.”
It is clear Gordon loves his car and he can’t imagine getting rid of it.
“Why would I want to get rid of it?” he asked. “Kind of like a good woman.”
Gordon thinks that his Volvo will last way longer than three million miles (4,828,032 km).
“I have a feeling I’ll be dead long before the car.”
