Woman Bites Off Police Officer's Ear in Nairobi
The officer had asked her where she was going past curfew hours, at which point a heated exchange of words ensued. The furious woman grabbed the officer's head firmly and bit off his ear.
A police officer is nursing injuries after he was attacked and his ear bit off by a woman in Nairobi after she was questioned for violating curfew hours.
The incident that occurred in the Lang'ata area involved the officer identified as sergeant Moses stumbling upon the woman at 8 pm while walking towards Bypass Patrol Base.
He had asked her where she was going past curfew hours, at which point a heated exchange of words ensued. The furious woman grabbed the officer's head firmly and bit off his ear.
“She bit his right ear cutting it completely. After noticing that she had injured the officer, she ran towards the river bordering Lang’ata and Kibera . The injured sergeant picked the piece of the ear which had fallen down and proceeded to Nairobi West Hospital,” read a police report seen by Citizen Digital.
The officer was admitted at the surgical ward where he is expected to undergo an operation to reconstruct the ear.
Meanwhile, investigations into the matter are ongoing and the woman is still at large.
A similar incident occurred on Sunday, April 4 where a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officer was reportedly bit three times to death at his home in Kahawa Wendani.
Reports by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) indicated that a fight between the officer, 37-year-old Daniel Omolo and 27-year-old wife, Violet Asale Emu broke out on Sunday morning, just minutes after midnight when the officer bit his wife on the shoulder.
Asale is said to have retaliated by biting him on his left thumb, left hand, right side of the chest and back of the shoulder.
"Realizing he had developed convulsions and was sliding into his death, Violet rushed her man to Kahawa Garrison health centre, but it was too late to save him. His body was already cold and without a pulse," read a statement by the DCI.
Asale has since been taken into custody as a suspect of the murder, with a body autopsy to be conducted on Omolo. He was serving as a private at the Gilgil KDF camp prior to his death.
