St. Clair Shores, Mich (The Weekly Vice) - Rahsaan Thedford, a 32-year-old Michigan man was ordered to stand trial Tuesday after he allegedly chewed off his wife's eyelid and then chased her out of the house with a steak knife.
According to police, Thedford had gone to his estranged wife's home on Mother's Day when the two began to argue. When the woman asked Thedford to leave, he retaliated in a manner that investigators compared to a scene out of the movie "The Silence of The Lambs."
Investigators say Thedford attacked his wife, pinned her to the floor and then chewed off her eyelid. When the woman managed to get away, Thedford chased her into the kitchen, picked up a steak knife and threatened to kill her with it.
That's when the woman fled from the house to her car where she called police.
When officers arrived, they found Thedford attempting to flee the scene by crawling under a fence in a nearby yard.
Although Thedford was arrested on mother's day, the judge presiding over the case ordered a preliminary examination to see if he was competent to stand trial.
He was booked into the Macomb County Jail on a charge of assault with intent to main. His bond has been set at $100,000.
Investigators say the couple separated after a year of marriage because Thedford had assaulted her 17-year-old daughter.
