Phantoms and Monsters – Real Eyewitness Cryptid Encounter Reports

A British man says he fled from a seven-foot tall telepathic alien mantis. He told of how he fled while cycling home through a woodland in Warwickshire.

This account was originally reported in the Daily Star:

“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 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 skeptical colleagues dubbed him the “Mantis Man of Warwick”.

He had been left traumatized and now struggles to sleep after cycling through Oakwood and Blacklow Spinney, shortly after finishing a 12-hour work shift on July 16, 2020.

“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.

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.”
