HOLYHEAD, Wales, April 23 (UPI) -- A Welsh judge has issued an arrest warrant for a man who allegedly assaulted two "Star Wars" fans while dressed as the intergalactic villain Darth Vader.

District Judge Andrew Shaw issued a warrant for the arrest of Arwel Wynne Jones, who allegedly hopped a fence while dressed in a Darth Vader helmet and a black garbage bag, and attacked brothers Barney and Michael Jones while they were conducting a TV interview, The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

The suspect had been seen at the courthouse before the hearing, but was not present when the judge arrived.

"I hope the force will soon be with him," Shaw said in ordering Wynne Jones' arrest.

Wynne Jones had previously denied the allegations against him.
