JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens (WABC) -- Police are searching for the man who bit off another man's finger when he couldn't get into a bar in Queens.

The suspect is accused of attacking the bouncer at El California Sports Bar in Jackson Heights.

It happened back on February 16 around 4:05 a.m.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, black boots and a black jacket with Japanese iconography inscribed throughout.
