A wife bit off her husband’s penis after he refused to get a rat out of her bedroom, police say.
Abraham Musonda, 52, from the Zambian town of Kitwe, was allegedly attacked by his 40-year-old wife Mukupa following a row about the rodent.
She claimed the animal was pestering her and became infuriated when she came home from drinks with pals to find the rat near bed.
Feeling unable to sleep while the pesky rodent had the run of the room, she ordered her husband to get rid of it, it is claimed.
A scuffle apparently ensued when he refused, with Mukupa managing to sink her teeth into his genitals, causing a ‘major tear’.
Bothwell Namuswa, Deputy Police Commissioner for Copperbelt Province, told the Zambian Observer the pair are essentially separated and live under the same roof in separate rooms.
Mr Musonda was rushed to a Kitwe Teaching Hospital for urgent medical treatment following the incident.
It comes after a man was arrested after beating his girlfriend’s son and allegedly cutting his genitals with his fingernails, authorities said.
Mohammad Mahmoud Shaar, 26, of Coconut Creek, Florida, dropped off his girlfriend at her workplace last Thursday before taking her four-year-old son to a babysitter’s home.
Shaar allegedly attacked the boy when he became increasingly upset after his mother got out of the car, according to an arrest report.
Broward Sheriff’s Office said the babysitter’s home was only 1.6 miles away from the mother’s place of work, but Shaar took 20 minutes to get there.
The babysitter said the the boy was crying and shaking when he arrived and Shaar left without giving her any explanation about what happened, reported Local10.com
