New Haven woman's finger bitten off

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police are attempting to figure out how a portion of New Haven woman's finger was bitten off earlier this week in the city's Wooster Square neighborhood.

Officers were dispatched to a home on Warren Street around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday and found the 44-year-old woman missing the tip of her left thumb.

Police spokesman Officer David Hartman says the woman appeared to be intoxicated and refused to cooperate with officers investigating the matter.

Hartman says police obtained the detached portion of the woman's thumb and she was transported to a local hospital. An update on her condition wasn't immediately available.

Police say it's unclear who bit off the woman's finger.
