A brawl between two Brooklyn straphangers turned gory over the weekend when one man bit off part of another guy’s lip, according to police and a video of the incident. The two unidentified combatants got into a scuffle inside the Utica Avenue 4/5/6 station in Crown Heights at about 10 p.m. Saturday, police said.
The men first circled one another and postured while a crowd of onlookers egged them on, according to graphic cell-phone footage posted to YouTube. “Just swing!” one spectator can be heard shouting. Other commuters simply walked through the battle as though nothing was going on.
The taller man bit the other guy’s “lip and jaw, removing a part of his lip,” police said. The bit man was taken to Kings County Hospital, police said.
It’s unclear what the brawl was about. There have been no arrests, and an investigation is ongoing, police said.
