Hartford officers called to St. Francis Hospital late Sunday on a report of a domestic violence assault discovered that the male victim had lost a portion of his right middle finger while trying to find off an attack by his former partner, Anna Lindo, 34, of Bloomfield, police said.
The man reported that Lindo had either bitten or cut off his finger as he was trying to restrain her from attacking him with a brick, police said.
Lindo was located at the scene of the attack in Hartford and taken into custody. Her mother found the portion of the finger but too much time had lapsed so it couldn’t be reattached, police said.
During the course of the investigation into the assault, police discovered that Lindo had posted videos on Facebook bragging about the incident and showcasing the finger, police said. She was charged with first-degree assault and disorderly conduct and held on $250,000 bond.
A judge reduced her bond to $75,000 after her arraignment in Hartford Superior Court Tuesday.
