EXCLUSIVE: Paul Froggatt, 26, has sketched the ET he claims he saw and likened its ‘pure alien hatred’ towards him to watching a spider eat a fly on a David Attenborough show
A cyclist says he fled from an “evil” seven-foot tall telepathic alien mantis and has drawn a picture of the bizarre creature for the Daily Star.
Paul Froggatt, 26, likened his terrifying ordeal to a spider eating a fly on a ” David Attenborough documentary”.
The shaggy-haired warehouse worker insisted he was not on booze or drugs as he shared his sketch of the ET with the Daily Star.
He told of how he fled after stumbling across the creature as he cycled home through woodland in Warwick.
Paul said: “It sounds crazy but I felt I could sense its feelings towards me and it was just like pure alien hatred.
“You know when you’re watching a David Attenborough documentary and you see a spider eating a fly and just a malevolent sense of evil?”
He said he was forced to quit his job after sceptical colleagues dubbed him the “Mantis man of Warwick”.
But Paul added he had been left traumatised and now struggles to sleep after cycling through Oakwood and Blacklow Spinney – shortly after finishing a 12-hour shift shift at a dog food warehouse on July 16 last year.
He said: “On a Thursday morning at 5am I was cycling home from work and I saw something odd in the sky. It was a glowing orange sphere just hovering on the horizon.
“At first I thought it must be Venus or a satellite but it seemed to be much closer than either of these things.
“I stopped on my way to take some photos – the object looked a fair bit bigger in person than visible in the photos.
“This is when the object started to move around and rotate in shape. I could see it was circular with a part sticking out from the main body.
“When this started I got the chills down my back and felt like there was something wrong here, I hurried on my way home.
“As I kept cycling I could swear the object was moving along my course but I just told myself it must be some kind of optical illusion.
“I entered a wooded area and lost sight of the object through the trees. Usually at this time of morning there is a chorus of bird song and insects but the woods were dead silent.”
He continued: “As I cycled down the path I came around a bend I saw something I will never forget.
“Standing a few meters ahead is what I can only describe as a humanoid praying mantis.
“This thing was at-least 7 foot tall, light green with triangular head and big oval black eyes. It had all the features of a mantis but stood on two legs and had a somehow human like shape about it.
“I was completely frozen with fear. For what felt like an age – but was probably only seconds – I stared into this creature’s eyes and it stared back.
“I felt like it could read my mind and I could read its.
“My fear was replaced with completely alien thoughts of utter hatred and evil I felt projected from this thing.
“I suddenly snapped out of this hypnotic kind of state and it made a step back as if it was gonna pounce on me.”
