"He apparently didn't have a good day at the beach."
Some of this reads like a classic zombie story:
"'[The attacker said] You, me, buddy, and nobody else here,'" Poppo recalled. "'I'm gonna - gonna kill you.' Or something like that, I guess."
"Did he say why?" Williams inquired.
"No, he just started to scream," Poppo explained. "And was talking kind of funny talk for a while too."
Other parts are just gory:
"He mashed my face into the sidewalk," he said. "My face is all bent and mashed up. My eyes, my eyes got plucked out. He was strangling me in wrestling holds at the same time he was plucking my eyes out."
