    Ronald Poppo, the victim of the “Miami Zombie” Rudy Eugene, said that Eugene “turned berserk” and “ripped me to ribbons.” In recently released interviews with detectives, Poppo discussed the attack that left him with a mangled face and blind in both eyes. Poppo said he did not remember ever meeting or seeing Eugene before the day of the attack and that “for a very short amount of time I thought he was a good guy.” He also graphically described the incident: “He mashed my face into the sidewalk. 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.”
