Police and paramedics were scrambled after a naked man smashed thought the front window of a house in Grimsby, apparently carrying his own severed hand.
The injured man sought refuge in a shop across the road after the incident late on Saturday afternoon. Paramedics treated him at the scene before he was taken to hospital.
It is believed he was being held against his will at the house after being forced to leave another address in Cleethorpes earlier on Saturday.
One shocked passer-by managed to photograph the moment that the man ran naked towards a nearby Lifestyle Express corner shop.
The man’s left lower arm is hidden by his body, but in his right hand he appears to be carrying a body part, which can also be made out in the shadow cast on the ground.
There are reports that the man had been assaulted in the house, possibly by two men, before he managed to escape by throwing himself through the window.
A terraced house across the road from the shop had its ground floor window almost completely smashed out. It was sealed off by police after the incident, reports Grimsby Live.
A heavy police presence was in the area following the incident on the afternoon of Saturday September 12.
Witnesses reported smashed glass from the ground floor window of the house and medical staff at the scene. Medical equipment used to treat the man was lying outside the Lifestyle Express shop.
One said: "Apparently the man jumped out of the window without any clothes on and ran across the road to a shop.
"It looks like he was treated by paramedics in the shop.”
Several police cars and vans descended on the area with officers setting up a large scene of crime area.
