CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A local woman's recovery after being viciously attacked by a neighbor is nothing short of amazing.

Cleveland Police say Lachelle Johnson got into a fight with her neighbor and during the vicious attack, the neighbor bit off part of her ear.

"The doctors say whoever did this to you--they're worse than animals," said Lachelle.

While Lachelle was seeking treatment at MetroHealth Medical Center, officers on scene were able to locate her severed ear and rush it back to the hospital.

Doctors were able to reattach the ear and Lachelle is grateful.

"I really appreciate it. That's a blessing that he did find my ear. I mean that's not a story you hear... They were wonderful. MetroHealth was wonderful. Wonderful." says Lachelle.

As for the neighbor, a grand jury is considering charges against her.
