Undated mug shot provided by the Pasadena Police Dept.California (ChattahBox) – A man suspected of raping a woman in California was arrested at an emergency room after the victim bit off a chunk of his tongue.

Ronald Douglas McGowan Jr. (shown left in an undated mug shot provided by the Pasadena Police Dept.) appeared at the ER a few hours after the reported rape, after the unnamed woman called police to report that she had injured her attacker. He was arrested after an attempt to reattach the tongue, which was found at the scene of the rape. Doctors were unable to mend it.

According to a report by the Pasadena Star News, McGowan is a known sex offender who has been listed in the state database for both crimes on adults, as well as a child under the age of 14.

He is currently living with a woman and her three small children, one of which is a baby. No more details have been released on the relationship McGowan has with the woman of children.

Due to the nature of the crime, his prior convictions, and the fact that he is believed to have targeted his victim specifically, he is being held without bail at the Riverside Superior Court Southwest Justice Center.
