A third seemingly random but incredibly vicious attack took place on the streets of Hull. This time it was the busy merchant district On the afternoon of Thursday 1st October and the victim, who has yet to be identified by the police, is currently reported as being as in a critical condition at Hull Royal Infirmary and has been unable to answer any questions regarding the attack.
The assailant was quickly apprehended after he refused to flee from the site, instead struggling against the brave members of the public who restrained him, seemingly set on a single minded course of action, to do as much harm as possible to his unfortunate victim.
All who witnessed the horrific attack were stunned by its ferocity and have all given statements to the constabulary, who hope for a swift resolution of this case. Since they have still been unable to resolve two attacks that were of similar barbarity recently, one of which caused the death Of Publican Roger Entwhistle four days previously, the mood in the city is not one of hope.
There so far has been no connection between not only the people who were attacked, but also nothing to string together the perpetrators, the first two of which were almost immediately sectioned to care of the De La Pole institute for mental instability, where it assumed they will spend the remainder of their lives, incapable of enough rational thought to ever see trial for their despicable acts.
Friends of the condemned, named to this reporter as Mr. Clive Hargrove and Miss Elaine Spears, were baffled by their behaviour, describing them both as normally calm and peaceable types who wouldn't harm a fly.
Until Chief Inspector Gaskin releases a statement, speculation will run rife in Hull, with many wondering who the next 'Hater' will be, and who they will strike out at.
