HAWLEY, Pa. -- Police say a naked, bloody man bit a woman's head after injuring himself jumping from the second floor of a northeastern Pennsylvania home he'd broken into.

Twenty-year-old Richard Cimino Jr. was charged Wednesday with aggravated assault and a dozen other counts in Friday's bizarre incident in Hawley, Wayne County.

Cimino, of Doylestown, allegedly stripped down and broke into an empty home after first trying an occupied house. Police say he was badly hurt jumping from a window but that didn't stop him from attacking a woman walking down the street nearby.

Investigators alleged Cimino was "screaming like an animal" as he bit the woman. The Citizens' Voice of Wilkes-Barre reports she and a companion escaped and called police.

Cimino remains hospitalized. Court documents don't list an attorney for him.
