KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A woman will need plastic surgery after police say her 20-year-old girlfriend chewed off her lip during a domestic violence incident. The 20-year-old suspect has been booked with aggravated battery, but isn't expected to be formally charged until Tuesday.
The attacked happened around 1 a.m. on Monday in the 2200 block of Silver Court. Police said the victim ran out of her apartment screaming for help.
A neighbor, who asked FOX 4 to only use her first name, Tyra, said the suspect told her the woman bit her own lip but the victim said something else.
"She said the girl did that to her, she bit my lip off and she was bleeding real bad and you know she was just really screaming and crying hysterically," said Tyra.
Tyra added that the victim was overheard taunting the victim, "Saying something about did you want your lip back and you know that she liked the taste of how her blood tasted. It was crazy."
The victim is being treated at an area hospital.
