Woman ‘bites off man’s testicle during an attempted rape’
A woman claims she bit off a man’s testicle as he tried to rape her.
Video footage of the woman offering her side of the story has gone viral as she claims she was in bed with another man at the time when the attacker, who was a former boyfriend, turned up.
Police are investigating the woman’s claims after the alleged attempted rape took place in the municipality of Miguel Alves, in the northern Brazilian state of Piaui, in the early hours of September 5.
The man was taken to hospital for treatment and released the same day.
The police, upon learning of the case, found the man and took him for questioning and a medical examination.
In the video, the woman says: “He hit me and started to assault me.
“The other guy was pulling him to get him off me but he would not go and he was pulling my hair.”
She added: “As he was naked on top of the bed, I hit him, and when he pulled my hair, I went down to his ball sack and bit.
“Because women aren’t as strong as men, you understand?
“So I went for his weak spot. I bit him.”
Local media have revealed that the pair were neighbours and had had a previous relationship.
The man has maintained that the attack was unprovoked.
It is reported that police have heard both parties and witnesses, and are awaiting the results of the man’s medical examination.
This will determine whether just one or both of the suspects will be indicted.
