Police are looking for the married lovers of suspected Chinese romeo Fei Lin, 41, after four masked men burst into his flat and cut off his penis at Niqiao village near Wenling city, in east China’s Zhejiang province.
He told police he had been asleep and it was around 4am when the men burst into the room and put a bag over his head.
He said: “They put something over my head and pulled down my trousers and then they ran off. I was so shocked I didn’t feel a thing – then I saw I was bleeding and my penis was gone.”
Emergency workers and police who searched for the severed organ failed to locate it, and believe it was taken away by the attackers.
The injured man, a rural migrant worker in the village, had been accused of affairs with local women and although he denied it police believe that the attack was a revenge assault.
