A South Carolina woman bit off a teen's tongue during an alleged home break-in and sexual assault attempt, according to a police report.
According to the Huffington Post, the 33-year-old victim told police she answered a knock at her door on Oct. 16 to find a 16-year-old boy; he was allegedly holding a knife and forced his way into the home.
The Huffington Post obtained a copy of the police report, which claims “the assailant told the woman, ‘stop fighting and I won’t hurt you’ before carrying her to her bedroom and attempting to remove her shorts.”
The report continued: “When she kicked him in the groin, he said, ‘now you have to die!’ and forced his tongue into her mouth, at which point she told police ‘she bit his tongue as hard as she could until she heard it snap.’"
Authorities later tracked down the 16-year-old boy and charged him, as an adult, with criminal sexual conduct, assault, burglary, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and kidnapping.
The Huffington Post said that according to the police report, the 16-year-old boy's tongue was found at the crime scene.
