Chicago Woman Arrested For Allegedly Biting Off Cousin’s Nose During Fight


A Chicago woman is accused of biting off her cousin’s nose during an argument during a party earlier this month.

According to prosecutors, 39-year-old Damika Robinson got into a fight with her second cousin at the woman’s house in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on Aug. 4. Robinson bit the hostess’ face several times, “including a bite that removed her nose,” the Sun-Times reports according to court records.

The 38-year-old victim was treated at an area hospital for what police described as “several bite marks to her face including her nose being bit off,” according to NBC Chicago.

Robinson wasn’t arrested until Wednesday by a fugitive task force, DNAinfo Chicago reports. On Thursday, she was charged with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and ordered held on $225,000 bond.

Prosecutors say they don’t know what started the argument between the two.
