Linda SwiftGAINESVILLE, FL – Police have arrested 52-year-old Linda Swift after she allegedly attacked an 89-year-old and bit off two of his fingers.

The unprovoked attack happened Tuesday morning at a group home where Swift and the victim both lived, when Swift started punching the elderly man in the head and chest.

During this assault, Swift bit off the end of the man’s index finger to the middle knuckle, as well as his ring finger to the first knuckle. Police say she also managed to tear a large portion of the man’s flesh from his hand with her teeth.

No word on the man’s current condition or what may have prompted the attack, but reports said he is permanently disfigured and lost a significant amount of blood.

When questioned, Swift’s only statement to police was: “Yes, I bit his fingers off.”

Swift was arrested and is now facing charges of aggravated battery on a person age 65 or older. She is being held at the Alachua County Jail on $500,000 bond. From the looks of her booking photo, it looks like someone managed to land a couple of punches to her face.
