Despite the CDC’s denial of a zombie apocalypse, a shocking new violent cannibal attack seems to indicate end times are nigh – or mad men hopped up on bath salts are  hungry – for human flesh!

From the bayous of Louisiana comes the latest grim report – as a man was arrested, handcuffed and shackled after allegedly biting a fleshy chunk out of a man's face during an attempted robbery, according to a police affidavit.

Carl Jacquneaux, 42, showed up at his ex-wife's house defying a court order of protection she had taken against him.

 He promptly attacked her current husband Todd Credeur.

Jacquneaux bared his teeth and repeatedly ripped into Credeur’s face, "removing flesh the size of a quarter," the affidavit said.

The victim Credeur told KATC-TV that was he was working in his front yard when he was attacked by the flesh eating Jacquneaux.   The vic — more than a bit shocked when his cheek was ripped — sprayed wasp spray in Jacquneaux face in self-defense.

Scott Assistant Police Chief Kert Thomas said, "Very unusual, it's not something we see every day".

His thirst for blood apparently still not quenched, Jacquneaux ran to pal Billy Louviere's house nearby. He brandished a knife to this throat and said "I will kill you if you don't tell me where your dad's gun is."

Jacquneaux fled Louviere's house with the gun and was promptly arrested at the dead end of a nearby street after the flesh eater’s first vic called cops, an affidavit said.

Police are listening intently to reports that the cannibal attack was prompted by Jacquneaux was high on bath salts, the same drug Miami cannibal Rudy Eugene took before devouring Ronald Poppo's face off down to his goatee over Memorial Day weekend.

Cops didn't perform blood test on the attacker so they can’t be sure if he was under the influence of the deadly mind altering substance that turns sane humans into flesh eating “zombies’.

Jacquneaux was charged aggravated second degree battery, violation of a protective order, aggravated burglary, simple battery and violation of probation.

He is being held in Lafayette Parish Jail in lieu of $312,500 bond.
