Man who allegedly bit his wife now wants to change his plea


A 47-year-old man who allegedly bit his wife back in July will request for a change of plea hearing.

Mizanur Rahman, who was jailed for allegedly sitting on his wife, biting her, and scratching her cheeks last July, has been scheduled for a change of plea hearing or status conference on Nov. 27, 2018.

Rahman has been charged with assault and battery and disturbing the peace.

Aside from the original charges, Rahman is also accused of violating a protective order. The wife had an active order of protection from the Superior Court, which directed Rahman to stay away from her.

According to a police report, Rahman drove to a barbecue concession stand in San Antonio where his wife and a man were standing.

Rahman ordered his wife to follow him but she refused and told him to leave.

Police said Rahman tried to grab his wife’s hand, but her male companion stepped in, blocking and pushing Rahman away.

Rahman then picked up a piece of wood about 4 feet in length and swung it at the man, hitting him in the arm.

The man held on to Rahman to stop him from hurting anyone else.

Superior Court Associate Judge Wesley Bogdan imposed a $5,000 cash bail on the defendant who was remanded to the Department of Corrections.
