A brute looking for booze flew into a rage when he arrived at a Queens bar past closing time and bit off the bouncer’s pinky finger, cops said Wednesday.
The prospective patron showed up at El California Sports Bar on Roosevelt Ave. near 76th St. in Jackson Heights just after the 4 a.m. on Feb. 16, cops said.
He demanded entry and got into an argument with the bouncer, who was locking up for the night. As they tussled, the would-be customer bit of a piece of the bouncer’s left pinky and ran off east on Roosevelt Ave.
EMTs took the guard to Bellevue Hospital, where doctors were able to reattach the pinky.
Cops released surveillance photos and video of the suspect Wednesday and asked for the public’s help identifying him.
He wore a distinctive black jacket adorned with Japanese iconography and is described as HIspanic with close-cut dark hair and a goatee. He was wearing black boots and blue jeans with the jacket.
