Mistaken identity

EVERTON striker Victor Anichebe demanded an apology from police yesterday after being confronted by officers who thought the Premier League player was part of a gang of violent jewel thieves. An Everton spokesman said Anichebe and a friend were peering in the window of a jewellers in the affluent town of Knutsford, northern England, when police pounced, believing the pair was scouting the premises.

A row ensued with the 20-year-old Nigerian, who is on crutches after undergoing surgery on a knee injury last week, and his friend was handcuffed. The pair was released when officers realized their mistake.
