Germany: Man bites off part of nose in bar brawl

BERLIN (AP) — Police say a bar fight between two young men ended painfully when one of the brawlers bit off a piece of his opponent's nose.

Police spokeswoman Claudia Hallersleben said the incident happened early Sunday at a bar in Bremen when a heated argument between the two turned into a fist fight. After bystanders separated them one jumped forward again and bit off a one-centimeter-long (0.5-inch) piece of the other man's nose and then ran away.

The victim, a 24-year old from Nordenham in northern Germany who was not identified, had to be treated at a hospital. Hallersleben said police are still looking for the attacker.
