Chicago man bites off parts of couple’s ears, gouges out eyes in ‘horror movie’ attack: report


A Chicago man is accused of biting off pieces of a couple’s ears and gouging out his eyes in a weekend attack that a judge likened to a horror movie, according to a local report.

Elijah Rule Hill Prince, 28, was arrested covered in blood, telling officers it was ‘peasant blood’, the The Chicago Sun-Times reported, citing Cook County prosecutors. He did not attend Monday’s hearing as he was undergoing a psychiatric test in a hospital.

Judge John F. Lyke Jr. said he thought he was “listening to a horror movie” as prosecutors described the disturbing attack, adding that it “shocked the conscience,” according to the report.

The incident unfolded in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue on Saturday when Rule Hill Prince approached the male victim and attempted to sell him something, prosecutors said. He attacked the man after he refused the offer.

Rule Hill Prince allegedly put the man in a chokehold and hit him over the head with a shovel before punching him in the face. He used his fingers to gouge out the man’s eyes, then bit his ears and the top of his head before spitting into the man’s mouth, prosecutors say.

During the attack, he also stuck a 3-inch block of wood in the man’s left eye, prosecutors said.

The man’s wife reportedly ran outside to help but was also attacked by Rule Hill Prince, who pulled her hair and gouged out her eyes. He then bit off her ears, tearing off “large chunks”, before spitting on her, according to prosecutors.

The couple were reportedly taken to hospital in serious condition.
