( 4UMF NEWS ) Naked Man Gnaws On Woman’s Head:
Are bath salts behind the latest zombie-like attack in Pennsylvania?
Police weren’t saying Thursday what caused a 20-year-old man to allegedly break into a Poconos home, jump out of a window and then chomp on a woman’s head while drenched in blood, according to reports.
The terrifying scene unfolded Sept. 7, when Richard Cimino Jr., of Buckingham, allegedly drove to Hawley and parked on a dead-end street around 4:30 a.m., reported The Morning Call.
There, he stripped to his underwear and tried to break into a house but was chased off after waking up the homeowner, according to state police. He ended up removing his undies before finding another home that was vacant.
Once inside, he made his way to the second floor and jumped from a window — injuring his limbs in the fall.
Naked and bleeding, he then encountered two women, Hawley residents Ann Monaghan and Nancy Dean-Corino, on the street, the Scranton Times-Tribune reported.
State police said he allegedly tackled Dean-Corino and “began to gnaw” on her head while “screaming like an animal,” the newspaper added.
The woman was reportedly covered in blood as she escaped to call police, but was not seriously injured.
When state troopers arrived, they said they found Cimino lying in the road and acting delusional. They had to subdue him with a stun gun, the Times-Tribune said.
He was expected to be charged with numerous crimes, including aggravated assault, indecent exposure and criminal trespass, but had not been arraigned as of Thursday, according to The Morning Call.
Cimino has remained in a Scranton hospital, but police haven’t said what may have caused the deviant display.
Synthetic marijuana and bath salts have been blamed for similar “cannibal” attacks across the country this year. But a high-profile incident in Miami, in which a naked 31-year-old chewed off the face of a homeless man in public, was not connected to any designer drug.
Authorities said attacker Rudy Eugene, who was shot dead by cops, only had traces of marijuana in his body.
Don’t blame that on the Mary Jane…
