Susan Mukuhi Mwarabu, Northfield teacher, goes all Mike Tyson in greasy spoon
A local Northfield teacher may be ready to assume Mike Tyson's mantle.
Meet Susan Mukuhi Mwarabu, a 30-year-old sixth grade teacher at Northfield Middle School by day, greasy spoon ear-biter by night.
Mwarabu was at the Uptowner at 4:22 a.m. eating french fries with her friends and acting a fool, according to the police report, when a man at the other table made a comment.
What Mwarabu did next would make Kid Dynamite proud.
Here's the description from police report by the victim, identified by his initials C.R.H.:
Mwarabu then approached the friend who made the comment and "leaned down, licked his face and appeared as if she was going to throw up," the complaint said. The friend gently pushed her away.
Mwarabu then leaned toward C.R.H. and licked his ear. C.R.H. "moved her back from him," according to the complaint, but Mwarabu leaned in again and bit off part of his ear.
Mwarabu's friends asked C.R.H., who was now bleeding, if he was OK. "He was in shock," the complaint said.
As they left, one of C.R.H.'s friends told police, he saw Mwarabu pick up the piece of C.R.H.'s ear from the floor and put it in her mouth, according to the complaint.
Wait, let me get this straight: she invoked the 10-second rule and picked up the piece of ear from the floor to enjoy as a snack on the way home?
That's just nasty.
Eventually the cops came and had to subdue the Rochester woman with pepper spray. Her next court appearance is April 5.
