"Where will it end?" Confused Man Runs Amok
Office workers, town goers and market traders alike were besieged today by a
The currently unidentified man rampaged through the town centre causing
chaos as he went.
Employees of TelCom, scene of the first incident, earlier
spoke of their experiences of the man. They tell of unusual banging sounds
emanating from an office lift, after which the door opened to reveal the
peripatetic frame of a turbulent man. The
man reportedly entered the office, rugby tackled a nearby worker to the
ground before demanding to know when “it” will end. The man then
hysterically searched through files, presumably looking for information.
Police were understood to have been called to the scene later in the
afternoon after the man managed to escape from
security guards in the TelCom office foyer and out onto the
Bystanders told of their confusion in the centre of town of seeing the
frenzied man running about spuriously shouting the
phrase “where will it end” sporadically.
“It was carnage,” Paul Whelk, a local fishmonger said. “I was standing at my

goer Gladys Powys recalls. Reports suggest that the man stopped briefly in
the marketplace area of town in order to balance
some cabbages on his head and chew on a railing.
Minutes later, police managed to restrain the man by placing a net in an
alleyway he was running towards during his trail of destruction. The man
eventually became entangled on the net and, after
nearly an hour of thrashing around forlornly, eventually accepted
that it had indeed ended.
