Police: Intruder wields karaoke machine, bites off man's ear

Associated Press - October 12, 2007 11:33 PM ET

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Uniondale, New York, say a crazed man broke into a home, attacked the owner, beat him with a karaoke machine and bit off his ear.

A Nassau County police spokeswoman says doctors were not able to reattach the victim's ear but his injuries were not life threatening. The resident attempted to defend himself with a vacuum cleaner hose.

Police say the attacker then crouched in the hallway until police arrived. A police official says the attack appeared to be random and that the suspect's behavior suggested drug use.

Interesting. This would have been one of those cases where using a weapon, such as a gun, would possibly have protected limb (ear), if not life. Now the poor fellow will need to get a prosthetic ear just to look normal. I wonder if he feels he needs a weapon now to defend himself? Truly sad though :cry:

He had a vacuum cleaner hose - how much more weapon did he need? The attacker is just lucky the victim didn't have an assault mop readily to hand.
the suspect's behavior suggested drug use.
Now there's an example of understatement. It would probably be a good bet that drugs or alcohol were involved.

Perhaps it's a bit insensitive of me but this incident comes across like a scene from an early Peter Sellers movie.
