It is believed that the person is not conscious during the attack, so he must be justified, whatever it may be, and referred to a psychiatrist for treatment.

Yes, it happened. For example, Kenneth Parks from Canada once stabbed his mother-in-law in a dream and threatened his father-in-law. At the same time, he arrived at their house by car, and after leaving it, he arrived at the police station, where he woke up in the end. He had no motive for the murder, and had never quarreled with his wife's relatives before. As it turned out, he is a sleepwalker, and quite active. At the trial he was acquitted.

The fact is that in such people, during sleep, one area of ​​the cerebral cortex is activated, while the rest continue to sleep. The blood supply to the cerebellum and other structures responsible for the coordination of movement is enhanced, so it becomes possible to carry out complex movements, including driving a car. You can read more here, for example.

Sleepwalkers are also often aggressive, because the area of ​​the brain responsible for emotions is "disinhibited", so we can say that they are not holding back their feelings.
