A 26-year old Argentinian woman cut off her 40-year old lover’s penis with a pair of garden shears.
Yep you read that right: GARDEN SHEARS!!!!
Brenda Barattini, an architect, attacked her lover on Nov 26 in the middle of the night while he was asleep, according to the local Argentina media.
But what would make a woman suddenly chop of her man's thing-thing?
The man who is going by the name Sergio, claims he was the woman’s lover, and that the attack on him was unprovoked. He claims he wasn't asleep when the attack happened but they were having some sort of sex game.
Sergio's lawyer, Eduardo Perez, is insisting that the pair were seeing each other for several months and, "They were in the middle of things. He wasn’t asleep. They began with a sexual game in which he was blindfolded. There is evidence that was at the crime scene."
The Sun reports, Barattini's lawyer Carlos Nayi claims, she was defending herself from a sexual assault.
"She let him into her apartment because he’s someone who’s in a rock band and is an acquaintance of her brother but once inside, instead of removing a musical instrument as he was supposed to, he attacked her sexually and she assumed a defensive attitude. Whether or not she acted excessively is for the courts to decide," said Nayi.
Barattini has been arrested and is awaiting a psychiatric evaluation and a rape kit.
Sergio was rushed to the hospital after losing a large amount of blood and is in intensive care.
State prosecutor Bettina Cropp said, “It’s very likely he’s lost the ability to be able to father children.”
