Woman attacked, cut, bitten by six women in Annapolis
Police looking for video surveillance of Thursday morning attack
A woman walking alone in Annapolis early Thursday morning was attacked from behind by a group of six other women she did not know, according to police.
After the attack, which police categorized as “unusual,” the unidentified victim took herself to Anne Arundel Medical Center with a two-inch laceration across one of her legs and a bite mark on her back. Staff at the hospital alerted police.
The woman told police she was walking to a gas station near the intersection of Bens Drive and Bay Ridge Ave. about 2:30 a.m. when the group of unknown women “came out of no where from behind her” and started punching and kicking her, said Det. Amy Miguez, a police spokeswoman.

Woman loses arm to flesh-eating bacteria from bath salts
A New Orleans woman’s experiment with the illicit drugs dubbed “bath salts” cost her her arm — and nearly her life — after she was ravaged by flesh-eating bacteria that invaded an injection site.
The 34-year-old woman showed up at a Louisiana hospital complaining of pain and redness on her right forearm, where there was a puncture wound the woman admitted was a needle stick. She said the symptoms started two days after she injected bath salts at party, according to a case report published online in the journal Orthopedics.
