Hearing problems

An Avenue K man was having trouble listening to his wife on May 22 after she nearly cut his ear off during a bloody spat.

Police said they arrived at the home, which is between East 94th and East 95th streets, at 10 pm after getting a call about the fight. When they went inside, they found the victim bleeding from a deep one-inch gash to his ear. The man claimed that his wife lashed at him with a sharp instrument during their argument.

The victim was rushed to an area hospital where he needed nine stitches to close the wound.

The woman, who was not named, was taken into custody, charged with assault in the second degree.
