Attack ... leopard takes chunk out of victim's scalp
The creature was chased into the man's house by panic-stricken locals after it wandered out of the jungle into a city centre.
The man startled the animal when he came out of his bedroom.
He was one of four people attacked by the beast as people attempted to stop it's rampage.
The leopard was eventually shut in a house in Guwahati, north-east India, by a rickshaw driver before being taken to nearby Assam State Zoo.
Witness Nipu Das said: "We were shocked to find the leopard inside the house and soon the cat started attacking."
Animal experts say the big cat probably strayed into the city centre in search of food.
