Cape Town – A man has been arrested in China after gnawing at a woman’s face in an apparent random attack, local reports said.

The Shanghai Daily said the man, who had been intoxicated, rushed the woman’s car and blocked it before climbing on its hood and hitting the windscreen while the woman screamed inside.

When the woman ran out of the car, the man, who friends say had been drinking heavily that day, pounced on her and started gnawing on her face once the pair were on the ground, the report said.

Witnesses said they tried to pull the man off the woman but he seemed so “crazy” they couldn’t stop him.

The attack, which has left the woman needing plastic surgery to repair her nose and lips, only stopped once police arrived, said the report.

The incident, which took place on Tuesday, 26 June comes exactly a month after a Miami policeman shot and killed Rudy Eugene who was found on the side of a road gnawing on the face of a homeless man, Ronald Poppo.

A post-mortem has recently revealed that Eugene only had marijuana in his system and not a synthetic drug known as “bath salts” as had been previously suspected.
