According to reports, a woman is in police custody for cutting off her former boss’s penis. The 23-year-old woman told law enforcement that her former boss had made an attempt to allegedly sexually assault her at a bar on Monday where both of them worked in Sant Andreu de la Barca, in Spain. The alleged victim is being held at a regional police station in Martorell.
After the incident, reports say the woman called 911, and that’s when the man was transferred to a local hospital where he underwent surgery to repair the damage. As of this report, it is unclear if doctors were successful to repair the damage. The woman told law enforcement that the man had attempted to rape her in the past and on several occasions succeeded.
Over the years, several women claimed that they were forced to protect themselves by severing men’s penis due to unwanted sexual activities or reportedly being raped.
In 1989, Lorena Bobbitt cut off her then ex-husband’s John Wayne Bobbitt’s, private parts after claiming to have suffered years of rape and abuse at the hands of him. Doctors were able to reattach his penis and John was acquitted on the rape charges.
In 2017, a woman in India cut off the private parts of a Hindu religious leader after claiming he had attempted to rape her. At the time of the incident, the woman was 23. She told law enforcement that the religious teacher, Gangeshananda Theerthapada, would come to her hometown of Kerala to offer spiritual teaching to her family at their home and that is when she said the leader had raped her numerous times on different occasions. No changes were pressed.
