A Texas woman was arrested after she allegedly attacked an acquaintance and bit a large portion of her nose off in a drunken rage late Wednesday.
The unidentified victim, 28, went out to a bar with her neighbor and her neighbor’s friend, Jessica Collins, 41, before the trio returned to the victim’s home where Collins allegedly assaulted her when she refused to get her beer and cigarettes, according to ABC 13.
‘My friend was attacked by a mentally unstable person last week, when me friend asked her to leave her property, instead of leaving, the lady lunged at my friend, biting off her nose and swallowing it,’ a GoFundMe page set up for the victim reads.
A photo of the woman’s nose was shared to her GoFundMe page created Monday. Her nose is seen split in half and gushing with blood.
The victim told the news station that the only thing she can recall from the nightmare incident was the ‘taste of blood’ in her mouth after she claimed Collins swallowed her nose.
While in the hospital, doctors informed the victim she would need reconstructive plastic surgery in order to repair her face.

Doctors urged her to go under the knife within the next two weeks to avoid further complication – but the woman is not insured.
‘The doctor is requesting payment upfront,’ the victim’s friend said in a statement on the crowdfunding page to help with medical costs.
‘The surgery costs $12,000, but there isn’t a price for the emotional and bodily damage my friend is enduring… any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.’
As of early Monday evening, the GoFundMe page raised $692 of its $12,000 goal.
The victim, who has since returned home from the hospital, told ABC 13 that she has been staying in her room because it is where she feels ‘safe’.
Collins was charged with assault-bodily injury for the barbaric attack.
