A FOUR-YEAR-OLD California boy may be permanently blinded after his father bit out one of his eyes and mutilated the other.
Police told The Bakersfield Californian Angel Vidal Mendoza, 34, appeared to be under the influence of the drug PCP when he attacked the boy on April 28.
They said Mr Mendoza later rolled his wheelchair outside and began hacking at his own legs with an axe.
Angelo Mendoza Junior told police, "My daddy ate my eyes"...
Doctors at Mercy Hospital said it is unclear whether Angelo will regain vision in his right eye.
The boy's mother wasn't home at the time..
Mr Mendoza is due in court on Thursday charged with mayhem, torture and child cruelty.
