A woman is accused of either biting or cutting off her ex’s middle finger in Hartford and posting about it on Facebook.
Police responded to St. Francis Hospital just before 11 p.m. on Sunday to meet with the victim and he told them a woman he’d been in a prior relationship with had tried to attack him with a brick. Then, as he was trying to defend himself and restrain her, the woman either bit or cut off part of his right middle finger, police said.
Police identified the suspect as 44-year-old Anna Lindo, of Bloomfield.
She was taken into custody where the assault occurred, police said, and no crime scene was found.
Lindo’s mother later contacted the police and said she had found the finger in her vehicle.
Officers responded, recovered the finger and brought it to St. Francis Hospital, but doctors couldn’t reattach it.
Police said Lindo was agitated and refused to be interviewed.
As they investigated, police said Lindo had posted several videos on Facebook boasting about the incident and showcasing the finger.
Bond for Lindo was set at $250,000.
She was charged with assault in the first degree and disorderly conduct.
