A Czech woman could face a year in prison after biting off a man's tongue during a kiss.

Police in Cheb say the woman, 39, attacked the 24-year-old after meeting him in a bar and inviting him back to her home.

He managed to call an ambulance and was taken to hospital where doctors successfully managed to sew it back on.

Officers told local media they believed the woman may have deliberately attacked the man and may charge her with assault.

Police spokesman Josef Mulenko said: "The pair had met in a bar a few hours earlier and she asked him if he would walk her home.

"When they got there she said she wanted a kiss goodnight. During the kiss she bit his tongue so hard that he had to call a doctor."
