Pennsylvania man gets prison after gnawing woman's head

HONESDALE, Pa. » A man has been sentenced to prison for attacking two women on a northeastern Pennsylvania sidewalk while bloody and naked, and gnawing on the head of one.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports a judge on Thursday sentenced 21-year-old Richard Cimino Jr. to between 90 days and nearly two years in prison for the September attack. He'd pleaded guilty to simple assault and other charges.

Cimino told Wayne County Judge Raymond Hill he was sorry. He was under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug at the time.

Investigators say Cimino had stripped down and broke into an empty home in Hawley in September, then was badly hurt jumping from a window. Authorities say he attacked the women walking down the street, gnawing on the head of one. Both escaped.

Where did he get the idea to do this? Must have been from a smartphone app?
