After Lancashire police shared his image on social media they were inundated by messages pointing out the likeness between the suspect and Friends character Ross Geller.

Schwimmer responded to the viral post with his own tweet, “proving” the suspect was not him, with a video of him impersonating his own lookalike.

“Officers, I swear it wasn’t me,” he wrote. “As you can see, I was in New York.”

Husseni, a 36-year-old from Slough, is accused of theft and fraud.

He has been summonsed to appear at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court on 18 December.

“Abdulah Husseini, 36, of Spencer Road, Slough, has been summonsed to appear at Blackpool Mags on 18 Dec accused of theft & fraud after items were stolen from Mr Basrai’s restaurant, Blackpool on Sept 20th,” Lancashire police tweeted.
