FORT GREEN, N.Y. (WPIX) -- In what could only be described as both amazing and disturbing, a Brooklyn man is recovering Friday after biting off the tip of his own penis.
Damiene Iriarte, 26, was found naked and bleeding behind a building in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn after taking a chomp out of his own manhood, police told the New York Daily News.
It's still unclear what prompted him to go in for the bite, as investigators remain both puzzled and impressed by the act. One thing that is clear is that it wasn't sparked on by a rational mind.
Iriarte reportedly pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors in Suffolk County back in 2004. He was also accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in 2003, reports say.
The 26-year-old is recovering at Brooklyn Hospital Center. His condition is still unknown at this time.
