Deputies said Priscilla Vaughn, 29, consumed Ecstasy, alcohol and marijuana and had just gotten back to a hotel room from a dinner at Applebees on Tuesday with a man she met on BackPage.com. During their time together, she started biting his penis and genitals, causing him to bleed heavily, deputies said.
The man told deputies it appeared as if she was "trying to eat his penis and testicles." He tried to fight her off but said she was too powerful as she tried to gouge his eyes out, according to the sheriff's report.
Vaughn also bit and scratched the man's leg, abdomen, chest and fingers and, as he tried to get her to stop, she took his car keys and broke his phone so he couldn't call for help, according to the report. The man told deputies he locked himself in the bathroom until authorities arrived, responding to multiple callers reporting screaming and growling noises from the room.
Deputies said Vaughn continued to growl and snarl at them as they placed her under arrested for aggravated battery, attempted second-degree murder, false imprisonment and tampering with witness to hinder communication to law enforcement.
The victim was treated by Fire Rescue and trauma center personnel at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
