A woman turned herself over to the police after slicing off her boss's manhood when he tried to rape her.
The woman, who works at a Spanish bar in Sant Andreu de la Barca (Barcelona), revealed that the boss tried to force her into having sex on several occasions in the past. However, the last time he tried to do so resulted in him having his penis chopped off!
When the woman gave her statement, she said that her boss "had forced her to have non-consensual sexual relations on several occasions," as reported by Sur in English. The boss tried to rape her again on Tuesday, June 1, but the woman resisted the sexual attack by grabbing a knife and severing his privates.
She then called the police herself to inform them of the shocking series of events, according to New York Post.
While the man was taken to a hospital in Barcelona, the woman was arrested by the Mossos d'Esquadra Catalan regional police.
Identified as a Bangladeshi national, the woman is reportedly in her 30s and had been suffering harassment at the hands of her boss for several months. Currently, an investigation is being carried out and the detectives are putting the effort to understand the earlier events that led to this drastic step and if the woman's claims of acting in self-defence is true.
A spokesperson for the regional Mossos d'Esquadra police force said, as quoted by the Daily Mail, "A woman has been arrested for a crime of wounding following an incident around midnight at a bar in Sant Andreu de la Barca. The arrest happened in the early hours of this morning."
"The woman was the one who contacted police to explain what had happened," the source went on to say. "She said she had cut off her boss's penis as he tried to sexually assault her. Her claims are being investigated and the bar owner may be arrested once the hospital say he is well enough to be questioned."
Although doctors performed an emergency operation on the man, it is unclear at the moment whether they were able to successfully reattach the organ.

The incident comes just months after a Spanish rapper, Aaron Beltran, was put on trial after being accused of hacking his roommate's penis for the sake of social media attention.
In March, 2019, the rapper was accused of cutting off his roommate Andrew B's privates on camera. Reports also said that Andrew promised to pay Aaron money based on the number of views their video received.
"On the afternoon of March 8, just before 7:15 pm when both men were in the victim’s bedroom, Andrew tied his pyjama cord round the bottom of his penis to avoid haemorrhaging," said the indictment against the rapper, as quoted by The Sun. "The accused, who was sat on a chair in front of him, cut his penis with a 12-inch kitchen knife which was never found because the accused got rid of it."
It was also reported that Andrew's penis was re-attached and regained proper functioning after the incident.
According to the Daily Mail, Andrew later told judges he mutilated himself, and Aaron was acquitted during the trial in Marcy, 2021.
