Woman Bites Off Man’s Tongue Fending Off Sexual Assault In Stamford

STAMFORD, CT (WCBS 880) – Police say a woman had just finished praying at St. John’s Church at Atlantic Street when she was approached by a man Thursday night while exiting out a side door.

Stamford police captain Richie Conklin says the man asked if he could hug the woman.

When she said no, he allegedly knocked her down and then grabbed and attempted to rape her.

“During that attack, he stuck his tongue into her mouth and she bit off a large portion of his tongue, which we recovered at the crime scene,” said Conklin. “There was an extreme amount of blood at the scene.”

Conklin says it was a big chunk.

The attacker was nabbed by police when he turned up seeking medical aid at a walk-in clinic in Stamford. Police had notified local medical centers that they were seeking a man missing a one inch piece of his tongue.

The alleged victim, who is in her 50s, was treated at Stamford Hospital.

    Until we start keeping non-whites on reservations, this sort of incident will continue to become more and more common.

  • Angela Glover

    Good for her! She should have bit off his private parts too!

    “The alleged victim, who is in her 50s, was treated at Stamford Hospital.”
    Excuse me!!!!! I have heard of the “alleged” per but NEVER have I heard of an “ALLEGED” victim. Does this mean this rag of a paper believes the woman was NOT a victim? Give me a break!!!
    While the alleged reporter was allegedly gathering information about thsi alleged assualt on the alleged victim…… Only in New York!!!! I hope.

    • Meg

      Yeah, I find that disgusting too. However, they now call all rape victims “alleged victims” because of the nature of the crime. Apparently, because there have been many false allegations of rape and it is a difficult crime to prove, they put the victim in the same category as the perpetrator. I think this case seems pretty cut and dry though….pretty obvious when you chomp off a portion of someone’s tongue, the sex is NOT consensual. Still, the label disgusts me because it makes women hesitant to report this crime and many rapists go unpunished.

    Hey, I wonder if she might wind up having to pay his medical bills.

    I know it sounds crazy, but I know of someone (who knows of someone) that was mugged at gunpoint in Brooklyn, only the would-be victim literally took matters into his own hands and turned the perp’s gun against him, blowing off the perp’s thumb(s)!

    Later on in court, turned out this guy had to pay the perp’s medical bills…it would have been cheaper to pay than fight the lawsuit brought by the perp — who was indeed convicted of attempted robbery, IIRC….

    Way to go lady!!!! So sorry you had to go through just a traumatic experience, but you are alive and well, Thanks God.

  • Misty

    Way to go Lady! You definitely make us women proud. I am sorry that she had to go through this, it still will scar her, but not as bad as what he could have done to her if she didn’t hurt him so bad. More women need to not worry about hurting someone when they are being attacked. They are there to hurt you so get them back!!!

  • taraann

    Can she bite of the tongue of the lead singer of Rammstein? I would pay her for that.

    • e m

      woooowwwww…..Rammstein…yea…id pay for that as well…maybe she needs a show after dr oz

  • ProFromDover

    After prison, he should have to give talks on why others shouldn’t do what he did. Should be Monty Python-funny, ala “Biggus” in “Life of Brian”.

  • Daniel S. Toma

    That’s justice for sticking his tongue in her mouth. What’d he think she’d do, embrace it with her own ?

  • Jim

    Doesn’t much matter what his name is, he’ll never pronounce it right again anyways.

  • Randy Loenfeld

    It wouldn’t surprise meat all if an ACLU affiliated lawyer takes up a lawsuit for the man and sues the woman for biting off his tongue. Unfortunately, this is how our liberal court system works…

  • Steve

    Why does the story not identify the man? He’s been arrested – isn’t his identity public record?

  • J.M. McLean

    They say the victim was well known for making tongue in cheek comments. Bless her last comment!



  • Dave Miller

    Ignore mother and set your sights a little lower.

  • ham07

    The liberal stat will pay for his speech therapy when he is incarcerated,

    Whothe thorry now?

    Finally! Women power! Go team Bobbit!

    • jblack

      I’m all in favor in what this woman did, but, seriously, “team Bobbit”? Perhaps you should move to a Muslim country where vigilante genital mutilation is acceptable. Your comment is sexist and divisive, and doesn’t help address the horrors of rape and rape culture.

  • railien7

    Good for her – this kind of counter attack should happen more often to injure their attackers. He definitely has something to think about now!!! Death to rapists!!!!

    • margie

      my thoughts exactly

  • doc

    Too bad it was not the little weiner that she bite off.

    • Frank D

      She would have had to wait longer.

      I’d love to meet this women. She sounds tough

  • josh

    I bet once she bit of his tongue a whole bunch of blood went in her mouth and wouldn’t be surprised if she swallowed some of it… hopefully the attacker does not have AIDS or another disease that she can get because of it

  • Gregory

    When this psycho get out of jail, he will be known as the lisping rapist. Of course, the ACLU and outher “be nice to criminals” groups will complain that the woman “used excessive force”.. Better to talk with a lisp than have your brains blown out; however, the later is more appealing.

    • Frank D

      It’s only attempted rape as he did not get far enough into the felony to make it.

      Oh well. Even better. Scarred for life and never got any. I bet he”ll get some in prison but be on the wrong end of the weenie roast they’ll be having. LOL

  • keith

    This is definitely a time when everyone should side with the victim. She told him no and he didn’t accept her straight forward answer you go girl.

  • RichieT

    He should be glad she didn’t bite something else off.

  • jojo

    LOL, I think you are very correct Peter. Hey, I wonder if it can be re-attached.

  • Peter

    I guess he won’t be attacking anyone anytime soon!!!! He won’t be eating any P###Y. LOL
