A Jersey City man who went to sleep after an argument with his girlfriend was awakened late on Thursday night when she bit his scrotum, tearing right through the skin, authorities said.
Linda Mendez, 40, was charged with aggravated assault and domestic violence, over the objection of her boyfriend, who told police he did not want to press charges. The mother-of-three appeared in court and her bail was set at $35,000 with a 10 percent cash option.
The 46-year-old victim told police that the two argued at 11:30pm, and to avoid the argument he went to sleep. Minutes later Mendez woke him by biting his neck and his scrotum, causing bleeding.
Mendez complained of pain in her left hand and was treated at the Jersey City Medical Center and released for incarceration. Mendez was also charged on three open warrants, two for light rail fare-jumping violations and the other for a city ordinance violation.
