Chef takes bite of co-worker’s ear

By Eman Al Baik

A chef allegedly bit the ear of a co-worker in retaliation for the latter verbally abusing a woman waiter, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

On June 13 at around 12.30am, MG, 28, Filipina waiter, was with her co-worker AO in the lift when the latter used bad words against her.

“I rushed to the chef and told him what AO had said to me. The chef headed to AO's room and the two started fighting with their hands,” testified the waiter.

A Chinese salesman was in the room with AO when the chef entered the room. The two started shouting at one another before a hand fight started. “I tried to push them away from one another but they were taller than me, so I could not. Suddenly I saw blood dripping from AO’s ear,” testified the salesman, HJ, 24.

Forensic reported that the bite caused distortion of the ear’s pinna with 2 percent rate of permanent disability.

The court will give sentence on February 10.
