Gloria Allred reps face-eater's girlfriend, talks about Rudy Eugene

NBC Miami – Speaking publicly for the first time, the MacArthur attacker’s girlfriend told reporters Wednesday there were no warning signs to her boyfriend’s cannibalistic attack on a homeless man.

In a prepared statement, 27-year-old Yovonka Bryant, who claims she was dating Rudy Eugene, the man shot dead after he chewed out most of a homeless man’s face, said she wanted to describe the Eugene she knew, not justify his actions.

“I love Rudy Eugene,” Bryant said. “I felt safe with Rudy.” She described Eugene, 31, as a family man and a religious person. Bryant said they never discussed voodoo or cannibalism and that her boyfriend was likely drugged without his knowledge.

“The time Rudy and I spent together, we took my kids out to the park, we dined in restaurants, we had family game and movie night at one of my relatives’ house, we often engaged in debates over what God really meant to people, and who was the biggest Miami Heat fan,” Bryant said.

High-profile attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Bryant, said she was hired in order expose the truth about who Rudy Eugene was.

“This is a high-profile case, she wanted to have the truth come out about her relationship with Rudy Eugene, and to have people understand who he was from her point of view, from her knowledge, from her experience. And that is why I’m here, to help her to have a voice and to help her tell what her relationship was and was not since Rudy Eugene can’t speak for himself,” Allred said at a news conference.
