Two men were arrested Thursday for breaking into an apartment and biting off the occupant's ear in southwest suburban Braidwood.
Cody Loeffelmann, 21, and Matthew Bryner, 20, both of downstate Kewanee are charged with aggravated battery, unlawful restraint, burglary, and vandalism.
Braidwood's police chief said the victim knew one of the suspects and had been involved in an "ongoing dispute" about a woman.
At 12:45 a.m. on June 5, Loeffelmann and Bryner went to the victim's apartment and forced their way inside.
"They tried to stab him with a knife they'd brought, beat him up, held him down and then one of them bit off the top half of his ear," Girot said.
The intruders fled after "destroying" the contents of the apartment, and neighbors called police after hearing the victim's screams, Girot said.
The man was taken to Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet where surgeons determined the piece of his ear could not be reattached.
Girot said the victim identified Loeffelmann and Bryner as his assailants, and warrants were issued for their arrests. The pair were taken into custody in Henry County.
Bryner is being held on a $100,000 bond, while Loeffelmann is being held on $150,000.
This biting off people’s face and other parts is catching. Perhaps the assailants lost their jobs under Obama and didn’t get their monthly allotment of stale cheese.
Or perhaps we have more mentally ill people out there who need to be put away for a long, long time.
They need to raise the Zombie threat level to orange.
No secondary infections reported yet.
I wonder what the incubation period is...
Oh please- not this early in the morning.
That pic scared the h#ll out of me.
