Police: Victim bit suspect’s tongue off.

Police arrested 16-year-old Antoine Tremane Miller of North Charleston, S.C., and charged him with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, first-degree assault, first-degree burglary, first-degree kidnapping and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to North Charleston Police Deputy Chief David Cheatle. The victim of an attempted sexual assault escaped after she bit off her attacker’s tongue, and South Carolina police caught the alleged assailant when his mom called police to report that her son’s tongue was gone.

But the knocking continued and the doorbell rang two more times, prompting the woman to go outside where she reportedly found a teenage male armed with a knife. Police said the woman shouted “no” and attempted to get back inside of her house, but the teenager used his body to block the door from closing and entered her home. During that incident, a 33-year-old North Charleston woman told police she opened her front door at 6:30 a.m. to find a man holding a knife, according to WCBD.

As he began to assault her, the woman kicked the suspect in the groin, according to the police report reviewed by WCSC, at which point the man responded, “Now you have to die.” She was able to flee and call for help. Cops found the woman with a visible bruise and swelling around her right eye and scratches under her left knee and on top of her left foot, WCSC reported.

The incident report goes on to say the victim ran back into the home where the suspect forced himself inside, tackled her to the floor, and punched her in the face.
