Man High On PCP Eats Son’s Eyeballs - Begins Chopping His Own Legs Off With An Ax







Bakersfield, California (The Weekly Vice) -- Angelo Vidal Mendoza, a 34-year-old Bakersfield, CA man, was arrested after allegedly eating son's eyeball and mutilating the other. He then began chopping his own legs off with an ax.

"Daddy ate my eyes." That's what 4-year-old Angelo Mendoza Jr. told police after they found him with one eye completely missing and another eye mutilated beyond repair.

According to Bakersfield Police, Angelo Vidal Mendoza was on PCP when he attacked his son April 28. He then reportedly rolled his wheelchair outside the home, chained himself to a tree and began hacking at his own legs with an ax.

Police were notified after neighbors found the child naked and bleeding on the floor inside the Mendoza home. Police were unable to find the boy's missing eye and muscle attachment.

Mendoza Jr. was rushed to a local hospital where doctors declared the boy's one remaining eye "damaged beyond repair." The boy currently remains completely blind following the attack.

Mendoza was booked into the downtown Bakersfield jail on charges of torture, aggravated mayhem and cruelty to a child. Bond was set of $1 million dollars.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

I included the video in on this story because I want everyone to listen carefully to the mother's response to this. A man has just committed a gruesome act against her son that will leave him permanently blind.... and listen to what she says.

It's the same thing we encounter here on the Vice... Children are beaten, raped, abused and tortured - yet how many times do we see comments stating "You don't know all the facts, he/she is really a good parent."

It's high fucking time people come to the realization that not everyone is a good parent. Some adults shouldn't be trusted to care for a dog, much less a child.

Oh my where to begin... Your 4 yr old son is crying and telling you he is afraid and "please take me with you" and you leave him there because the man is yelling at you.

I hope to God her tubes are tied!

How the hell did this guy get full custody???

I hope this poor little boy gets the love and attention he needs from his aunt.

I'm going to go vomit now.

crazyaquariusgurl said...

un-fucking-belivable! that is beyond horrendous, and she left her son there, she needs to be in trouble with the law too. i can't even think about this story it sickens me...

Ida_Slapter said...

Angel was in a wheelchair??? Mom was out... Perhaps she was the one making the living. There's a lot of unanswered questions in this story.

Police when you find this type of person going to do an injury to themselve please take your coffee break and come back later.

Someone please put a bullet in this guys head.

In this case I believe an eye for an eye is an appropriate punishment. Too bad our court system would call it cruel to the perpetrator.

WELL IM 14 AND I LOVEE KIDS, AN DI HATE TO SEE HOW OUR ECONOMY IS AND HOW PARENTS ARE KILLING AND TORTURING THEIR KIDS. I BELIEVE THAT MOTHER SHOULD NOT BE IN TROUBLE ALTHOUGH THE KID CRIED TO HER BUT THERE IS NOTHING SHE COULD DO SINCE HE HAS FULL CUSTODY. YES I KNOW SHE CAN FIGHT TO WIN HER CUSTODY BUT WHO KNOW'S HOW LONG THAT WILL TAKE BEFORE THIS HAD HAPPEND. SO WHATS DONE IS DONE, AND HOPEFULLY THAT MAN WILL SERVE HIS TIME LIFE IN JAIL. I MYSELF WANT TO BE A LAWYER AND IF I WAS DEFENDING THIS CASE I WOULD SENTENCE HIM TO DEATH ROW. THE THOUGHT OF SOMEONE DOING THAT TO A INNOCENT KID JUST MAKES ME CRY INSIDE.. I WISH THE BEST FOR THIS FAMILY.

Hi Danny,
Thank you for printing this story. This poor child the emotional and physical trauma of this attack is heart breaking! The screams that must have come out of his mouth, the pain he must have felt; it's just too horrendous to fathom. I have lived in Bakersfield my entire life, and never once have I heard of such a thing happening in our community, and to a child no less!! This is like a surreal moment from a horror movie!! I just hope and pray that this child doesn't grow up to be so emtionally scared by this event that he cannot live a happy and fullfilling life. Best wishes to you little buddy!! We'll be praying for you!! With Love from my family to you!!

Now about this so-called father ~
Unfortunately those on PCP have no real idea the extent of their 'craziness.' It's also unfortuanate that some lawyer is probably going to try to use it as a defense for this creature, because after all that may be the only defense he has!!

I HOPE YOU ROT IN HELL YOU AWFULL DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A FATHER!!

PCP users. Worse than tweakers if that was at all possible. Mom sounds like a piece of work. According to Bakersfied newspaper she has drug issues. That kid needs to be taken away from the family period. Not to be cynical but the poor kid will be fought over since he know will receive benefits from SSI for blindness. Fruit doesn't fall far from the tree, ya know. Back in the seventies in South Boston there was a rash of PCP users jumping off Old Colony (the Irish project- well used to be) and highway bridges. After a while people stopped using it and switched to meth. Man, I hate drugs and the druggies who use them.

Wow, I am so disgusted at the actions of this person and heartbroken for this small child. I am a momma and I would defend my babies to the end, no matter their age, but especially one as young and defenseless as this little one.

Big Poppa said...

I'm a 6'2" body builder and I would love the opportunity to be locked in a room with this P.O.S. for a few hours. I don't need anything but a rusty pocket knife and some tourniqets so he won't bleed out too fast. I would make sure he enjoyed some "fine dining" before he died a slow, painful death.. This just makes me sick.

Sassy said...

Not surprised since he was on PCP...HOWEVER that doesn't take away the fact that this was a gruesome and painful act for a small child (or anyone) to endure. Hang that sperm donor by his toenails and string the incubator up by her nipples. No sympathy for them AT ALL!

This worthless MF'er deserves nothing less than the death penalty.

A slow acid drip...

She was too afraid to go back to the house, but she thought her 4 year old would be ok?! She should be held responsible as well.

Natasha said...

This has been bothering me since I read it. I feel so bad for that poor little boy and I hope they kill his insane father behind bars. The mother on the other hand doesn't give 2 fucks about her son how the hell could she just leave her baby with that monster she sounds like she was scared of him herself and imagine what she did to loose her son in the first place if that criminal ended up with custody. This is a sad case of what happens when 2 crackheads have a child. I know people who smoke PCP and I stay far from them when I know they are on it. They become very violent and crazy I had to literally beat the shit out of one of my homegirls after she got mad at me when I found out she brought PCP in my house. After comfronting her she got mad and started screaming at the top of her lungs and then tried to destroy my bedroom,she pulled her pants down and had her period, my dog came from uder the bed barking at her and she grab and tried to choke him, blood was everywhere and before I let her destroy my house I had to attack, beat and then drag her out of my house. It was like comming face to face with the devil. I would advise anyone who comes in contact with someone on PCP to get far far away. So Sad

That was the most disturbing thing i have ever heard. He ate his 4 year old sons eye and tried to cut off his own legs. That man is going to get his one way or another. my heart goes out to the little boy.

d1965862 said...

I missed the part where it said he was high on PCP. Can someone please point it out to me? I've watched it repeatedly

Danny Vice said...

d1965,

When I write a story, it isn't based on a news video. I go directly to police press releases or the arrest affidavit itself whenever I can.

Police determined that he was high on PCP after local news shot the video above.

That is horrible. Honestly doing that that to your own child. I wouldn't hesitate to give that kid my eye and give those so called parents a piece of my mind, with my fists and feet.

TDPEJ said...

Have just to say that at times reality really wins against fiction...how can it be such cruelty and madness around the world.
Have also to say precisely that in many different parts of the world people is envious of America "big country for big hopes", but from everything I hear on the news, tv, internet and also real life that there's something totally wrong going on there..maybe it's desperation or more probably just ignorance...that sadly happens also here in my country, but funnily enough are foreigners making those acts of madness.
Wanted to visit this big fabled continent once, but this for sure makes a bad sponsorisation.

Come to think of it, my son's eyes do look rather delicious...

ladyk said...

This makes me sick and I hate all bastards and bitches that can do such things like this to their kids. All these evil motherfuckers need to be taken out to a field and be shot in the back of the head. Child Abuse is wrong!

Missypants said...

This is what PCP does to your brain - the mother is probably BURNT. She also has a child endangerment charge in the past from being under the influence of PCP. The boy will manage blindness in an of itself - I am more worried about the accompanying anger, fear, and resentment from inconsistent caregiving. STUPID STUPID PEOPLE!

Drugs...this is so unreal on multiple levels! What is this world coming to...? Biblically speaking, Sodom and Gommorah must have been diabolical, in comparison, since we haven't seen 40 days and nights of rain yet...

Mr.B said...

It's not about being good or bad, people, it's about knowing about drugs and knowing how to handle them, and how to stay safe from drugs.

Someone said "he's going to get his one way or another"..


Well after the PCP wore off and he saw what he did to his kid, I'm sure he got "his" right then and there.

THAT is what PCP can do to some people folks! I don't care if doesn't happen to all people or all the time. If you smoke that junk, something different, random and probably equally disturbing CAN happen to you or anyone.
