LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man allegedly murdered another man at a bus stop near the Las Vegas Strip, eating his victim’s face in the process, according to documents the 8 News Now Investigators obtained.

Colin Czech, 29, faces a charge of open murder.

Just before 5 a.m. Sunday, a person called police about a man who reportedly tackled another man to the ground on Las Vegas Boulevard near Charleston Boulevard, documents said. About 45 minutes later, another person called police, saying a man was on top of another man at a bus stop “eating” the other man’s face.

Officers responded, finding Czech kneeling next to the victim with “biological matter in his hair, mouth and on his clothing,” documents said. Czech reportedly told officers the victim had attacked him.

Paramedics transported the victim, identified as Kenneth Brown to the hospital where a doctor pronounced him deceased. Brown had a large cut to part of his head and he was missing an eye and ear, according to documents the 8 News Now Investigators obtained.

While in police custody, Czech “was going in and out of consciousness,” documents said. He later told officers he is unhoused and was awake for “five days straight” because something was “possessing him,” according to the documents.

Czech also told detectives he used his teeth to hurt the victim, adding “he used his teeth to eat [the man’s] eyeballs and ears,” documents said.

Czech did not appear for his initial appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court on Monday afternoon because he was in the hospital, the judge said. His next court appearance was scheduled for Wednesday, May 1 at 8:30 a.m.
