Why Are More Men Having Their Penises Cut Off?
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (KABC) --
A woman was arrested in Garden Grove for allegedly tying her husband up and cutting off his penis, police said on Tuesday.
Authorities responded to the 14000 block of Flower Street at
about 9 p.m. Monday after the woman, identified as Catherine Kieu
Becker, reported a medical emergency. When officers arrived, they found a
51-year-old man tied to a bed and bleeding from his groin area.
Police said the woman drugged the victim during dinner to make him
sleepy and tied him to a bed. The victim woke up as the suspect was
cutting off his penis with a knife.
The woman allegedly tossed the penis into the garbage disposal, and then turned the garbage disposal on.
The victim was rushed to UCI Medical Center in serious condition. He underwent surgery and was listed in stable condition.
Authorities said the suspect was the one who called police, and she
told officers on scene that he "deserved it." Police say the two are
married but going through a divorce.
The woman was arrested for
aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon,
administering a drug with intent to commit felony, poisoning and spousal
abuse. She is being held at the Orange County Jail on $1 million bail.
The incident remains under investigation.
