China ‘cannibal’ attack

A drunk bus driver pounced on a woman and chewed her face in the latest horrific ‘cannibal attack’. The victim, named locally as Du, was driving past a bus station in China when the crazed man ran out into the road and stood in front of her car, blocking her way.

The man, named locally as Dong, then allegedly climbed onto the bonnet of Du’s car and started hitting the windscreen as the terrified woman screamed for help. When she got out of the car and tried to escape, Dong – who is believed to have been drinking heavily during lunch – leapt on top of her and wrestled her to the ground.

The bus driver then allegedly started chewing Du’s face, biting her nose and lips, leaving her covered in blood, according to local reports in China.

Passers-by reportedly tried to pull Dong off the woman but said he was so “crazed” he resisted any attempt to restrain him. The gruesome attack, which happened on Tuesday in the city of Wenzhou in south-east China, eventually ended when police arrived and took the drunk man into custody.

Du was taken to hospital, where doctors said she would need plastic surgery to repair the damage to her nose and lips.
