He claims he was strip-searched, beaten and put in cells for ten hours before police twigged he was not ex-fugitive Irish hood Dean Evans, 31.
The gangster, who also shares the same birthday as warehouse worker Dean, had been extradited from Spain in 2018.
Dean, of Margate, Kent, said: “It was a terrifying experience. I was frightened for my life.

“I said they’d got the wrong man but they wouldn’t listen. The police kept saying I was a very dangerous man and I’d never see my children again.”
Wife Georgina, 33, with whom Dean has kids Crystal, 14, and Cody, nine, said: “The police didn’t do their research at all. They scared Dean to death.”
A Spanish National Police source said Dean was released after his fingerprints were checked — and this had been impossible in the early hours.
