In what might be the strangest story of the year, two young Pokemon Go players were attacked in Sweden by a couple wearing pig masks. The assault took place in Insjon, a small town of about 2,000 people in Sweden. Two teenage siblings went to a local park to capture Pokemon using the popular mobile app, but instead discovered the strange couple. According to Local.Se, a Swedish news site, the couple waved a green laser at the teens, striking one of the children in the face.

The story gets even weirder from there. Later that evening, other residents reported that the couple were seen having sex in public near a local waterwheel, causing a traffic jam as cars stopped to watch the pair's antics. In addition to pig masks, the couple were also wearing matching t-shirts that said "King" and "Queen" respectively.

Local police are searching for the couple, who have yet to be identified, as shooting a laser in someone's face could be grounds for an assault charge. Luckily, neither Pokemon Go player reported an injury from the attack.

Although the whole incident is quite bizarre, one good thing did come out of Insjon's strange night. The story was reported with the headline "Sex Pigs Halt Traffic After Laser Attack On Pokémon Teens", which might be the greatest headline ever written.
