A man who stole a mattress in Uganda was immediately “arrested” by a snake and had to surrender himself and the stolen item.
The thief stole a brand new mattress this morning in Kyenjojo district in the Western Region of Uganda.
But before he could flee with the stolen item a snake attacked him and wrapped itself around his neck.
Desperate to get help, he cried out, thereby alerting people.
A native doctor has been called and efforts are being made to remove the snake from the man’s neck.
