Attack at Whitechapel Mission

May 24 2009
Staff member is bitten in an unprovoked attack The Pavement has confirmed rumours that a day centre staff member had his finger badly bitten in an unprovoked attack on 3rd February. The staff member was cleaning the showers at the Whitechapel Mission in London when Adelaja Salami, 55, almost bit off his finger. The bite went through the bone, leaving only a piece of skin connecting his finger to his hand. The staff member, who cannot be named, was taken to hospital but has now returned to work. Mr Salami, who has no fixed abode, has been charged with grievous bodily harm. He appeared in the Thames Magistrate Court on 4th February. Whitechapel Mission was unavailable for comment.
