She bit his tongue as hard as she could until she heard it snap. That’s according to an incident report HLN obtained from the North Charleston Police department detailing an alleged attempted rape attack thwarted by the victim. The chilling story allegedly begins early on a Friday morning when the victim heard a knock on her door and went to answer it. However, upon opening the door, no one was outside so she went back to bed.
Suddenly, the victim heard a second knock on at the door. Again, police say she went to answer it and again, no one was there. After returning to bed, she heard the doorbell ring. This time, authorities say, the victim went outside onto her porch to investigate and allegedly saw a man standing there holding a knife with a white handle against his chest. She screamed, “No!” and ran back inside. The victim was, however, unable to close the door all the way because police say the suspect had forced half his body in as she was attempting to shut it. According to the police report, the suspect allegedly forced himself into the house, tackled the victim to the floor and punched her in the face several times.
The suspect then allegedly asked the victim the location of her bedroom, picked her up, placing her over his shoulder, and carried her through the house, authorities say. Upon arrival at the bedroom, the police report states the suspect attempted to take the victim’s shorts off so she kicked him in the groin. This is when, according to police, the suspect allegedly said, “Now you have to die!”
Still on top of her, police say the suspect allegedly tried to force his tongue into the victim’s mouth. She bit as hard as she could till it snapped, the report states. The victim told police the suspect jumped off her screaming. Police documents say the suspect’s tongue was still in the victim’s mouth as she ran to leave, so she spit it out and threw it on the floor of her kitchen. The victim then bolted for her car and was able to drive to a nearby store and call for help.
According to the police report, authorities were able to locate the suspect a short time later at a Waffle House after his mother called 911 due to him not having a tongue and needing medical assistance. Authorities were able to locate the victim’s tongue and the knife described by the victim. The suspect, Antoine Miller, is a 16-year-old juvenile but is being charged as an adult. Miller was charged with criminal sexual conduct, assault, burglary, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and kidnapping. He’s currently being held at the Charleston County Jail. HLN reached out to Miller’s attorney but did not receive a statement by deadline.
