A 52-year-old woman from Asker is to appear in Oslo District Court, accused of having bitten off the little finger of another woman in a mosque in Oslo.

The incident took place in Tawfiiq Islamic Center in Åkebergveien, Grønland in Oslo last February. The accused woman bit off the upper part of the bone of the victim’s little finger, according to the indictment. The prosecuting authority expects the 52-year-old to be convicted of grievous bodily harm as the violence “has resulted in an incurable defect or injury or incapacity to work for any duration”.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, became placed on sick leave 17 days after the incident.

It was late in the afternoon of February 9 that the police were notified of a fight in the mosque, and that the victim was bleeding and unconscious. When a police arrived at the scene, they had to search for a period before they found the bitten off fingertip and had it sent to the hospital, according to VG’s coverage in a news release.
