The said man had only just executed a robbery in Kyenjojo, a district in the western region of Uganda. The individual stole a new mattress in the morning of that day.

But as he set to hasten his pace and avoid being caught, he was attacked by a snake that took the liberty to crawl to its neck and coiled itself there neatly.

Befuddled, the man abandoned all sense of escape and cried for help. Several people who heard his cry came to his rescue. However, no one had the boldness to attempt freeing the man who could not help but hang his head in shame of his living burden.

In order to prevent the man from dying from the choke, a native herbalist was called who was said to exert all effort to save the man’s neck but all to no avail.

The mysterious event was reported and posted by an Ugandan community on Facebook. The post was captioned with these words: "Today morning in Kyenjojo District, a big snake caught a man who stole a mattress it's on his neck rolling."

The post was, however, restricted to public viewership.

NAIJ.com is yet to assert the present position of the thief but one thing is certain, karma has a way of taking a ride or a crawl where justice is not readily available.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com recently reported the news of a man who was caught while stealing a phone right in front of the owner.
