DALLAS, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Dallas police said they are searching for a man accused of striking a woman twice with a frozen armadillo while negotiating about the price of the carcass.

Police said the man was attempting to sell the frozen armadillo to a 57-year-old woman in an apartment complex parking lot Sept. 29, but the pair argued about the price of the animal, which the woman planned to cook and eat, KDFW-TV, Dallas/Fort Worth, reported Wednesday.

The man threw the armadillo at the woman twice, causing bruises to her leg and chest, police said.

Investigators said the man could face assault charges if he is identified.
