People come up with all manner of strange reasoning to account for why they do horrible things. And yet no matter how much sense it makes to them, most of the time it doesn’t make any sense to the rest of us. A mas was recently arrested for a series of assaults in Carlisle, Cumbria in West England, however the reasoning behind his attacks will leave you puzzled.

The man in question, who was recently apprehended by Cumbria Police, had assaulted six elderly shoppers; including five women and one man. According to reports from the victims, the attacker came up to them and slapped them after they had sneezed. The man responsible for these attacks is believed to be in his mid-to-late 50’s and donned a plush, tweed jacket. Thankfully the individual responsible has been arrested, now we can go back to sneezing without looking behind us.
