A woman cuts off her partner's penis while she sleeps

A 39-year-old Peruvian woman cut off the genitals of her partner who was suspected of infidelity with a kitchen knife.

The man, who returned home after a drunken evening, immediately fell asleep before his partner mutilated him in his sleep, Belgian media 7Sur7 reported.

The victim was taken to a hospital, but the injuries were not life-threatening, 7Sur7 reported, citing local media.

The case is being heard by the courts as prosecutors in the northern city of Chota attempt to take stock of the exact circumstances surrounding this event.

Last December, a 34-year-old Brazilian woman in the town of Atibaia, near São Paulo, cut off her husband's penis before flushing it down the toilet.

The 30-year-old admitted to police she acted out of anger after finding out her partner had cheated on her with their 15-year-old niece on her birthday.
