Police are looking to arrest a 50-year-old man on charges of assault for slapping shoppers, police in the United Kingdom said.

Cumbria Police said that the first incident occurred on Monday, after a woman who was shopping in Carlisle, sneezed.

She was slapped across the face by the suspect. On Tuesday, the same man slapped an old man after sneezing. Several hours later, an 82-year-old woman was slapped across the face for sneezing.

Police described the suspect as a 50-year-old man and wearing a tweed jacket. Police have urged the public to help them track down the man responsible for the attacks.

Shoppers said that they are frightened by the behavior of the suspect.
