As reported by news.com.au, Monday (5/28/2012), this terrible event occurred on Saturday (26/5) afternoon local time, near the busy Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. A witness saw a man who attacked bum, before the police arrived on the scene.
According to the witness, a police officer who arrived on the scene immediately pointed their guns at the cannibal man and asked him to halt vicious deeds.
“The man just standing … with a piece flesh in his mouth and he was screaming,” said the witness named Larry Vega, told WSVN-TV, the police then opened fire several times until the man collapsed and was lying beside victim.
Separately, sources from the local police said, police patrol department who was crossing locations, suddenly saw naked cannibals man are chewing man face. The officer then gave a warning to the perpetrator to stay away from the victim.
But the order was ignored, so the police were forced to fired their guns to the man. Although the circumstances were injured, the cannibal man still continued eating victim’s face. Police were forced to shoot dead so that a total of six shots that make the man died.
Miami police spokesman, Javier Ortiz, said police officer who shot the cannibal man as ‘heroes’, because the police officer making the right decision when critical conditions at that time because the half of victim’s face was mutilated and eaten by perpetrator. The victim is currently hospitalized and in critical condition due to severe injuries.
It is unknown why the perpetrator attacked bum. It is not clear also why the perpetrator and victim are both found in a naked condition. Assumptions of the police, the offender suffered from the condition of ‘cocaine psychosis’ or insanity due to drugs, in which the offender was very sultry and hot, so he took off his clothes.
The naked man who was fatally shot by Miami Police Saturday as he chewed another man’s face has been identified, according to Local 10.
Rudy Eugene, 31, of North Miami Beach was shot multiple times during the grisly assault on the Downtown exit ramp of the busy MacArthur Causeway. The Miami Herald reports he had been arrested 8 times since the age of 16, including a battery charge which was later dropped and 4 instances involving marijuana.
“I wouldn’t say he had [a] mental problem but he always felt like people was against him type of attitude,” ex-wife Jenny Ductant told Local 10, saying the marriage ended when Eugene became increasingly violent. “No one was for him, everyone was against him.”
A neighbor said Eugene’s former home had been foreclosed on in 2011, and homeless people living in the area of the attack said he was frequently spotted wandering the area, looking confused.
An eyewitness who was riding his bike on the causeway Saturday afternoon said he flagged down a police officer after coming across Eugene, stark naked, chewing another man’s face.
“The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, ‘Get off!’” Larry Vega told WSVN. “The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin.”
But Vega said when the police officer yelled at Eugene to back away, the naked man merely raised his head “with pieces of flesh in his mouth,” growled, and began chewing again.
The officer reportedly then shot Eugene once, but Eugene still continued to attack the man’s face, prompting the officer to shoot multiple times until he was dead. The shooting and its aftermath were captured on surveillance video from the Miami Herald’s parking garage, but police are still trying to piece together details and are asking witnesses to come forward.
The identity of Eugene’s victim, believed to be a homeless man, has not been released. He is reportedly in serious condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
“Seventy-five to 80 percent of his face was missing,” Armando Aguilar of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police Aguilar told NBC Miami. “He was actually swallowing pieces of the man’s face.”
Police say Eugene may have been suffering from a drug-induced psychosis which causes the body to heat up, prompting some users to remove their clothes in an effort to cool down, the Herald reported.
Aguilar says authorities have seen several such cases of excited delirium in which people have taken off their clothes, seemingly displayed superhuman strength, and have used their jaws as weapons. One such assault allegedly occurred after the Ultra Music Festival in March when a naked reveler Evan Oberfelder attacked a good samaritan and first responders after being hit by a taxi. 14 police officers were treated for blood exposure or injuries after managing to subdue Oberfelder.
“We have seen, already, three or four cases that are exactly like this where some people have admitted taking LSD and it’s no different than cocaine psychosis,” Aguilar told CBS.
One emergency room doctor suspects an LSD-like substance called bath salts is behind Eugene’s attack, citing several cases of drug-induced mania in Miami in recent months.
“It’s dangerous for the police,” Dr. Paul Adams told CBSMiami. “It’s dangerous for the fire fighters. It’s dangers for the hospital workers taking care of them because they come in, they have to be restrained both chemically and physically and you’re asking for someone to get hurt.”
“The guy, he was like a zombie, blood dripping, it was intense,” The New York Daily News quotes Vega as saying. “The closest thing I’ve seen to it? ‘The Walking Dead’.”
