The man then left the store before continuing his mile-long stabbing spree as police rushed to the scene and eventually detained him under the Mental Heath Act.

Mr Bhadal, 53, who owns the shop, said: ‘It was pretty frightening. He just came into the shop while I was talking to a customer and out of nowhere just smashed him in the face.

‘He walked in, grabbed a drink from the fridge and as he came to the counter just whacked this elderly guy for no reason at all.

‘He was covered in blood himself and it was quite a scary. There was blood literally dripping from his hands and his head and I just acted on instinct.

‘I came out from behind the counter and pushed and grabbed this guy to try and usher him out of the shop and away from the customer.

‘I was telling him “you can’t do this” and he was shoving me back but I tried to stand my ground.

‘He was saying he was going to slice us up if I didn’t let him go, so I eased my grip on him and luckily he looked at us both and then just walked away.

‘I wasn’t sure if he had a gun, a knife, or a different weapon so it was pretty worrying and at that time we didn’t know about any other attacks.

‘The customer was left a bit battered and bruised but he didn’t go to hospital. He was obviously a bit shaken up though.

‘The man then went into another shop and punched this poor woman several times before attacking another woman in Boots.

‘He also attacked another man and a couple of other women before police eventually turned up and tasered him.

‘I don’t think I really thought about what I was doing at the time, I just wanted to protect my customer and my business.’

Then the man walks towards the 71-year-old pensioner with the can in his hand while the shop owner watches on 

He then hits the pensioner with the can making contact as the man holds a newspaper under his arm 

The shocking string of attacks began when a woman was stabbed in the face with a pair of scissors at 7.45am at her home on Gilbert Close.

Further attacks were then carried out about a mile away in Bedworth town centre before the suspect was arrested outside a One Stop shop.

A trail of blood could be seen around the town centre while other shocking pictures shows smears of blood across the front door of a house.

In total, three people were believed to have been stabbed and eight further victims sustained minor injuries.

Sheila Corcoran, 76, the neighbour of one victim, described hearing banging noises as the suspect, who also lives nearby, tried to force his way into one property.

She said: ‘The lady who lives next door to me was stabbed.

‘She managed to get him off her, because he tried to enter the house. She managed to get him loose, but she was attacked in the face.

‘I did hear something bang, but I just thought she had dropped something. Now I know it was her banging the door.

‘She managed to close her door and lock it quickly. Later on, she had to go to hospital for stitches.

‘There is blood all on her door and a trail of blood all outside my house.’
