And just to finish off today with another severed penis…
A 6-year-old boy’s penis was bitten off by his father in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
The father was believed to be suffering mental disorder at that time.
Doctors restored the boy’s penis with surgery but he may still risk a lifetime of disability.
The boy is now in safe condition and may need long-term psychological therapy to heal his trauma.
Witnesses said the father, 32, was taking the boy and his four-year-old sister, all naked, for a walk in the street.
He asked the boy to bite his penis and when the boy refused, he attacked him.
When people realized what had happened, they rushed to rescue the boy who was already screaming with blood gushing out of his crotch.
They held down the father and picked up the penis that was thrown into the shrubs.
Police detained the father and the boy was rushed to a hospital. The girl was later picked up by her relatives.
The divorced father lived with his children in a rented room about 500 metres away from the site of attack.
Neighbours said he used to treat his children well until this year when he looked abnormal.
The man was jobless and about 90,000 yuan in debts after his wife left him in 2010 over their business failure.
The man has been sent to a hospital for medical treatment, Shenzhen police said.
Police in Tennessee say that a purse snatcher didn’t get far before becoming entangled in shrubbery.
A Johnson City police report stated that officers arrested 18-year-old Cody Scott Smith after a woman’s purse was grabbed from her shopping cart at Rugged Warehouse.
The report states that the victim gave chase and that Smith got stuck in some shrubs outside the store as he tried to run away.
Smith then handed the wallet back to the owner and apologized for taking it.
Police charged Smith with theft, drug paraphernalia possession and identity theft.
Officers also arrested 19-year-old Brett L. Dixon of Bristol.
Jail records don’t show whether they have attorneys. Both were still held Wednesday morning.
