A St. Paul man was charged with first-degree assault on Wednesday after police said he stabbed another man with an ice scraper, which caused the victim's eye to fall out.
Justin L. Mulligan, 28, was charged with first-degree felony assault after an officer heard shouting during the routine patrol of 1225 Westminster St. in St. Paul.
The officer reported that he saw Mulligan smash out the driver's-side window with a nearly 3-foot-long ice scraper and began striking the man inside reported the Pioneer Press.
The victim was "bleeding profusely from his eye with the mangled remains of his eyeball hanging from his socket," The Star Tribune reported.
The victim was taken to Regions Hospital.
