SARASOTA, FLORIDA (WFLA/NBC News) — A domesticated squirrel is being blamed for a series of attacks in a Florida neighborhood.

The offending rodent has gone after four people, using its claws and teeth to injure his victims.

Robby Armstrong’s security camera caught the latest sneak attack.

“The squirrel ran behind me and jumped on my side, went down my shoulder, got on my elbow and just chomped on me,” he says.

The attack lasted only seconds, but the little guy did a number on Armstrong’s arm and elbow.

“It just clawed me up all over here and bit me here and here, it’s deep. That’s where he came up here and bit me there and I just grabbed him and threw him on the ground,” he says.

Armstrong says a neighbor nursed the squirrel to health as a baby.

Armstrong recognizes him when he sees him.

“This squirrel doesn’t have much hair on its tail because the 6-year-old next door trimmed the hair on its tail, put it on Barbie’s head,” he says.
