BUENA PARK, Calif. — A 29-year-old man is behind bars on suspicion of biting off a chunk of a man's eyebrow, chewing it up and spitting it out, police said Wednesday.

Buena Park police Cpl. Andy Luong said officers went to Kaiser Permanente in Anaheim about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday regarding an assault investigation. Officers found a 41-year-old Placentia man who was being treated for a bite — described as being the size of an egg — over his right eyebrow.

The investigation revealed the man was at a friend's party at a home in the 7500 block of El Cerro Drive in Buena Park about 8:30 p.m. Friday when he got into an argument with another partygoer, Luong said, adding that the two men did not know each other.

During the argument, the victim was punched and knocked to the ground. That's when the attacker, who police later identified as Luis Miguel Aguilar, got on top of him, leaned over and took a big chunk out of his eyebrow, Luong said.

He started chewing it and then spit it out, Luong said, adding that doctors were unable to reattach the piece of flesh because it was so badly damaged during the chewing. The victim will need reconstructive surgery.
