Escort Bites Man's Genitals, Charged With Attempted Murder

An escort who allegedly bit a man's genitals is facing attempted murder charges in Florida, reports The Huffington Post.

The woman, Priscilla Vaughn, was heard growling in a hotel room near Orlando. She'd allegedly met her date through an escort website.

According to the victim's accounts to sheriff's deputies, the pair had dinner at Applebee's, shared some drinks and then smoked marijuana.

Vaughn must have had a serious case of the munchies, because she allegedly began chomping on the victim's penis as she began to give him oral sex.

She allegedly also bit other parts of the victim's body, against his will. When he tried to escape, she blocked his exit and even took apart his cell phone, deputies said.

The man's story was seemingly corroborated by witnesses who heard what they said sounded like an animal in the adjacent suite. When deputies arrived, they found a naked man covered in blood, fading in and out of consciousness.

According to HuffPo, the man's testicles were "eviscerated."

Vaughn is now facing charges of aggravated battery, false imprisonment and hindering calls to law enforcement, in addition to the charge of attempted second-degree murder.

In the room, deputies also found a sex toy that was chewed, with the top bitten off. According to Orlando's WESH-TV, officers claimed that the bitten-off toy indicated that Vaughn had a "desire to cause severe damage to a male penis."

While normally an incident of biting someone would lead to a battery or even aggravated battery, police say that the victim would have died had he not been rushed to the hospital by emergency response personnel.

As such, although perhaps Vaughn's intent wasn't to kill the man, her charges have amounted to attempted murder. If convicted of that charge, she could face up to 15 years in prison.
