I'm betting mental instability, probably Schizophrenia. It's widely known that there are a lot of traumatized immigrants from other nations in the
UK who do not get the right treatment, whether that's due to language barriers or social stigmas, or lack of outreach and funding.
I had a violent encounter with a schizophrenic once, and the police actually told me that this was quite common in men coming from Somalia and similar
regions, who grew up surrounded by violence on a daily basis.
Think about it, a lot of the immigrants who come to the UK come here as a result of escaping a war zone. They grow up in a brutal place where they see
people killed on the street in front of them. A lot of people were brought here by their parents fleeing these conflicts and they never receive any
counselling or treatment of any kind.
The explanation seems pretty solid to me. Plenty of soldiers come back from war zones with psychological problems, and you can expect that if children
are exposed to that growing up it warps their perception of the world.
This is no excuse of course, it's just a possible explanation.
Either way, I hope the man is caught and punished - or treated adequately and away from the rest of civilized society.
