Northfield - A teacher is facing a felony assault charge after biting off part of a man's ear and then picking it up from the ground and putting it in her mouth.
Susan Mukuhi Mwarabu, 30, was charged on Monday with third-degree assault - Inflicting substantial bodily harm.
She has recently been released from the Ramsey County jail on condition that she either pay a $5,000 bail bond or be taken in by the non-profit organization Project Remand.
The incident occurred in the Uptowner Cafe on Sunday at about 4:22 a.m.
According to the 33-year old victim, identified as C.R.H, he was sitting down in the cafe eating with his friends, seated not far away from a group of four females including the intoxicated Ms Mwarabu, when one of his mates commented on one of the woman who was eating French fries.
The two groups of people were strangers yet after seeing C.R.H's mate talking about them, Ms Mwarabu reportedly "gave him a look."
Later, she approached the victim's friend who had made a comment and "leaned down, licked his face and appeared as if she was going to throw up".
C.R.H's friend 'gently' pushed her away before she leaned towards C.R.H, licked him and bit off a piece of his ear, it is alleged.
The victim was quite obviously in shock and was bleeding from his ear, police said.
Ms Mwarabu was then asked to leave by an employee of the cafe and police were called.
One of C.R.H's friends said as they left, he saw Ms Mwarabu take the piece of ear from the ground and put it in her mouth.
When he reached hospital to undergo emergency surgery, C.R.H was told by a plastic surgeon that some of the ear would grow back. The doctor also said it will take time before they can accurately judge whether more surgery would be required.
