(Scroll down for video) A man was hospitalized after he amputated his own arm and gouged out his eye.
Police were called to a residence in Arizona, after a man who did a welfare check discovered blood in the home.
Phoenix police officers went inside the home and found the decapitated body of a woman and two dogs. They also found a man who cut off his left arm and pulled out one of his eyeballs.
The gruesome scene was discovered shortly after 9:45 a.m., in the area of 13th Place and Colter Street, police said.
Police spokesperson Sgt. Trent Crump said that a male neighbor knocked on the door of the apartment to check on the 43-year-old suspect, who had not seen the day before.
When the man, whose name was not released, opened the door, his left arm below the elbow and his left eye was missing.
The neighbor could see that the floors and walls of the apartment were covered with blood and immediately contacted the police.
The decapitated body of the woman was found inside a walk-in closet. Two dead dogs were also discovered inside the residence.
The suspect was taken to a hospital, where he has undergone surgery. He is facing charges of murder.
