Police were called to the scene and found that one of the men, age 47, had apparently bitten the other man’s thumb down to the knuckle.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment, WCVB reports.

Police have not released the accused man’s identity and it was not immediately clear what caused the altercation.

Under Massachusetts law, a charge of mayhem refers to harming another person “with malicious intent to maim or disfigure.”
