A sex offender in Bedfordshire, England with the name of Ferdinand Manila was convicted via DNA evidence of an earlier attack where the victim bit off a part of his tongue and gave it to police, according to Daily Mail. The attacker who was described as mentally unstable, went on to assault a 55 years old victim later on the same day. It was a fluke of luck that he was arrested two months later on suspicion but unrelated to the two earlier assaults. Through police profiling based on the piece of his flesh, they were able to link him to the earlier attack.
The woman who bit off Manila’s tongue said her goal was to get as much evidence about him as possible. She said: “I fought him off as much as I could and wanted to leave as much evidence as possible on his body and my body to show that it was not consensual in any way, shape or form. I wanted to gather as much evidence as I could – under my nails, by biting his tongue – so that police could catch him. Initially, he went in for a kiss, but then as soon as I started fighting back and biting and scratching him that’s when he tried to make the sexual advances. It freaked me out!”
