Connecticut Woman Bites Off Attacker's Tongue
A Stamford, Connecticut woman fought off a would-be sexual assailant Thursday night by biting his fucking tongue off. No pepper spray, no Mace, no stabbing with car keys: just nerves of steel and the ability to bite clean through someone's tongue. The woman was attacked around 10 p.m. in an alley near a Catholic church in town, and bit off "a substantial piece" of the man's tongue (about one inch). The perp, 46-year-old Gerard Michael Landon, sought treatment at a clinic and was apprehended by police. He was treated at Stamford Hospital and is being held on a $500,000 bond. Perhaps, though, the worst punishment is losing half of your tongue.
