NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A 16-year-old sex assault suspect's tongue was bitten off by his alleged victim during an early morning attack last Friday at her Sumner Avenue home, police say.

Police identified the teenaged suspect as Antoine Tremane Miller, of Remount Road. He was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, first-degree assault, first-degree burglary, first-degree kidnapping, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

According to North Charleston police, officers were dispatched to Remount and North Murray avenues shortly after 7 a.m. to tend to the 33-year-old victim who fled her home after the attack.

The report notes that there was blood on the floor of the bedroom when the officers arrived.

According to the report, the woman told police she heard a knock at her door at 6:30 a.m. but when she answered it, no one was there. There was a second knock at her door, she told officers, and again no one was there. Then her doorbell rang and when she opened the door, a black man holding a knife was standing on her porch.

The woman told police she screamed and tried to run back in the house, but Miller forced his way inside her home, tackled her, and punched her several times, the report states.

"Stop fighting and I won't hurt you," Miller reportedly told the woman before carrying her over his shoulder to the bedroom, the report states.

Miller tried to remove the woman's shorts but she reportedly kicked him in the groin. Miller then forced himself on top of her and tried to kiss her, forcing his tongue in her mouth, the report states.

The victim retaliated, and "bit his tongue as hard as she could until she heard it snap," she told police. That led to Miller moving away, screaming, she added.

The woman said Miller's tongue was still in her mouth, so she ran from her home and threw it on the kitchen floor. She made it to her car and drove until she found an open store so that she could call police.

Based on the description the victim gave and Miller's mother's call to 911 because her son did not have a tongue,:p police were able to locate Miller at the Waffle House on Northwoods Boulevard.
