Leoaai Elghareeb was captured sticking syringes of his own blood into produce in three supermarkets – (screenshot)
A man in the #UnitedKingdom was caught on camera allegedly inserting his blood into food at a grocery store
On Aug. 25, 37-year-old #LeoaaiElghareeb (who is also a solicitor (lawyer) of all things) went to Fulham, west London, and walked into several grocery stores, including #TescoMarkets, Waitress and Sainsbury’s. During his visits, he allegedly stuck a syringe into multiple food items, including chicken tikka fillets, ready-to-eat meals and apples. And the syringe was filled with his blood; the entire incident was caught on camera. Afterward, Elghareeb allegedly threw eggs at customers and grocery store workers and pushed a security guard in the chest.
Elghareeb is accused of throwing an empty needle at a National Health Service surgeon outdoors. The man was eventually detained outside a bar after the thew a potted plant through an open doorway, the New York Post reports. Twenty-one syringes were recovered from the scenes. The stores had to restock their food following the ordeal, which resulted in each store losing between $150,000 and $300,000.

Wait! There’s more …
Newsweek reports that consultant forensic psychiatrist Dr. Bradley Hillier told the court that Elghareeb was “severely psychotic” at the time of the rampage and could not appreciate that his actions were “legally and morally wrong,” the Mirror reported.
He told the court: “He was not thinking straight … He was so burdened and tortured, is the [wording] he used.”
