Cannibal Attacks Move Overseas: Chinese Man Jumps on Hood of Woman’s Car, Chews Her Face and Nose
July 3—The fearsome cannibal attacks that have rocked the nation since late May continue—this time in China.
English-language newspaper Shanghai Daily reports that an intoxicated bus driver with the last name Dong blocked a car on a road in Wenzhou City of Zhejiang Province before climbing onto the car’s hood and beating on the windshield.
The car’s female driver, surnamed Du, attempted to flee before her assailant jumped her and proceeded to chew on her face. Several passers-by tried to pull Dong off of Du before police intervened. Doctors say Du will need plastic surgery to fix damage to her nose and lips. Dong is said to have been drinking heavily with friends at lunch that day.
The case closely mirrors the first reported instance of zombie-like behavior this year—Rudy Eugene’s May 26 attack on 65-year-old homeless man Ronald Poppo in Miami. Eugene gnawed off Poppo’s face, blinding him and removing his nose and one eye, before being shot to death by police after repeated attempts to move him failed.
Police initially suspected the controversial drug known as bath salts was involved before a full toxicology report indicated that only marijuana was present in his system at the time. Additionally, witnesses claimed Eugene swallowed several pieces of Poppo’s flesh, but none were found in his stomach during an autopsy.
Speaking to the Huffington Post in June about the incidents, therapist Karen Hylen of California’s Summit Malibu Treatment Center said that cannibalism can prove addictive. “People who have engaged in this act report feelings of euphoria or get a ‘high’ by performing the action to completion,” Hylen stated. “These people have psychopathic tendencies and are generally not psychotic. They know exactly what they are doing.”
