Police: ‘Agitated’ woman bit off boyfriend’s earlobe

Abrahim told officers she suspected boyfriend was cheating

CLAYSBURG — A woman accused of completely biting a man’s earlobe off Saturday told police he had been “agitating” her all day.

Narisa Abrahim was arrested about 10 p.m. Saturday after Greenfield Township police were dispatched to 1688 Overland Pass Road in Claysburg for a report of a domestic dispute and found a man with blood running down his neck, according to the charges.

The man told Greenfield Township police Officer Daniel Estep that Abrahim had bitten his ear off after she approached him with two knives in her hand — one a sharp knife and the other a bread knife. He said she poked him with one of the knives while the two were in the bathroom and then she bit his earlobe off.

He was subsequently taken to UPMC Altoona for treatment.

When asked by police about what happened, the 25-year-old Abrahim said the pair had been dating for the past few months and she suspected he was cheating on her. Abrahim allegedly said the man had been agitating her all day, police noted.

The man told police the two had been drinking that evening. Court records indicate it was Abrahim’s birthday.

Abrahim, who is from Bronx, N.Y., was booked on a count of felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor charges of simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

Bail was set at $50,000 cash by Magisterial District Judge Paula Aigner on Sunday, and Abrahim posted bail on Monday through a bail bondsman.

A preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Andrew Blattenberger is scheduled for Thursday in Martinsburg District Court.
