Man bit off bouncer’s finger after learning bar was closed: cops

An enraged man chomped off a chunk of a bouncer’s finger when he was denied entry to a Queens bar that had closed for the night, police said Wednesday.

The 37-year-old worker was closing the doors to El California Sports Bar on Roosevelt Avenue in Elmhurst shortly after 4 a.m. Feb. 16 when the stranger approached and tried to get in.

When the bouncer told him the bar was closed, the man began squabbling with him — and then bit off part of his pinky finger, cops said.

Police described the suspect as having a medium build, a goatee and dark hair. He ran off east on Roosevelt Avenue. He also was wearing “a black jacket with Japanese iconography inscribed throughout.”

His victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center, where doctors were able to reattach his finger.
