The Police are in need of remedial spelling lessons

Apparently the cops in Wellington want to find someone with scratch marks to their face and who owns clothing with "white sculls" on it, in relation to an investigation into an attack on a young woman.

While its entirely possible that a member of a rowing club or a kayaking enthusiast was responsible for the attack (hence the word "scull"), it might be more probable that the cops are after someone who was wearing a clothing item with white "skulls" on it – ie the series of bones that make up a persons head.

While it might be a mere typo, I'd hate to think that members of  the public are casting wayward glances at rowing enthusiasts instead of heavymetal/gothic/satanist types. It's tempting to describe the police as numbsculls/numbskulls. Maybe their PR team ought to go on that celebrity spelling bee show?

It would be a short visit.
