65-year-old Ronald Poppo (left) was attacked on Saturday alongside of a highway in Miami, Florida. The attacker, Rudy Eugene (right), stripped, hit, and bit the face of Poppo in the middle of the afternoon this past weekend, according to surveillance tapes and eyewitnesses.
Eugene apparently chewed at Poppo’s face with his teeth, and repeatedly hit the man with his fists. Poppo, who is homeless, was sitting in the shade on the side of the highway when Eugene suddenly attacked him and pulled him onto the road.
Police officers who responded to the attack urged Eugene to stop attacking Poppo, but Eugene did not respond. An officer then shot and killed Eugene at the scene.
Poppo has been hospitalized since the attack, and is currently in critical condition. According to doctors, the homeless man will have to go through months of treatments, facial reconstruction, and possible infections. Many of these infections could be a result of being attacked with Eugene’s mouth.
