A 27-year-old man was bitten on the hand and robbed of his cash while making a beer run in Charleston today.
Kael Klassen told police he was biking to get beer shortly before 1 a.m. when a man emerged from the darkness and pushed him off his bicycle at Dingle and Congress streets. The stranger then bit his hand and snatched $40 from his grasp, according to a police report.
Klassen told police his glasses fell off during the attack and he did not get a good look at the robber. Officers stopped two men in the area who fit the description Klassen was able to provide, but he was unable to identify either man as the robber, police said.
Klassen declined medical treatment as the bite did not pierce his skin, police said.
