Northfield Man Bites Off Piece Of Strangers Finger After Taking Drugs
A 20-year-old from Northfield who was under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs, while attending a spiritual event in Superior National Forest attacked a woman and bit part of a strangers finger off.
The attack happened at a "Rainbow Gathering" in Cook County on Sunday, with Spencer Fredrickson, facing 1st-degree assault charges.
The Cook County Sheriff's Office said that while under the influence of LSD and LSA ("Morning Glory Seeds"), Fredrickson, grabbed a 40-year-old woman by the throat, tried to strangle her and attempted "to pull her jaw apart by force."
This happened after she had tried to calm him down as well as refusing his unwanted advances. A man came to the aid of the woman but as he was trying to free the woman, Fredrickson bit off part of the man's finger. Frederickson was eventually subdued using duct tape. When a Cook County deputy arrived, Fredrickson attacked the deputy, breaking the skin through the officer's gloves.
Fredrickson is being held on a $200,000 bail.
