Pittsburgh Police: Argument About Donald Trump Prompts Man to Bite Ear off Another Man

A Pittsburgh man’s ear was reportedly bitten off during an argument about President Donald Trump.

The incident occurred around 6:45 a.m. on Monday in the East Liberty neighborhood. Pittsburgh police said that the 30-year-old victim was attacked in his apartment.

Police responded after the victim fled to a gas station for help, the Associated Press reported.

Police spokesperson Emily Schaffer could not provide details about the argument, and it was not immediately clear whether the suspect was a Trump supporter. Schaffer declined to name the suspect while a search for him was underway.

The victim’s ear was recovered by police and he was taken to UPMC Presbyterian hospital.
