ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - New and disturbing details have emerged about the alleged toe biter accused of trying to bite off his ex-girlfriends toe three times.
According to police, Daniel Anaya, 27, used to work at Dillard's in the shoe department.
Anaya is accused of the latest attack on April 1.
The victim says Anaya broke into an apartment in northeast Albuquerque and waited for the victim. She says he held her down, took off her shoe and tried to bite off her right big toe.
He then pulled out what appeared to be a cigar cutter and began cutting, according to the woman. That's when the woman grabbed a fork and started stabbing him in the back of the neck.
She then tried to gouge out his eyes, which allowed her to get away and call police.
Anaya was in court Friday to face the charges. The judge set his bond at $50,000.
