A man who cheated on his former wife while they were married, has learnt in the most gruesome way, that hell hath no fury than a woman scorned.
A 58-year-old Taiwanese woman has cut off her ex-husband’s genitals after luring him back.
She then proceeded to douse the genitals in acid and flushed them down the toilet after finding out he had cheated on her when they were married.
The suspect, who was only identified by the police as Ms Lee, 58, used a sharp pair of scissors to cut the genitals off.
All he has left now is just 1 centimetre (0.4 inches) of manhood.
“If I can’t have it, no one else can”, she was quoted as having fumed before taking 40 sleeping pills in an apparent suicide attempt.
The attack happened in the couple’s home in the township of Hukou which is in Taiwan’s north-western county of Hsinchu on 24th July.
Reports say they had divorced less than a month ago, but Mr Chen, jobless for two years, continued to live off his wife.
Authorities with the local Xinhu Precinct said they received a call from a howling Mr Chen, 56, following the incident at 8:50pm local time.
He feared more violence from his ex-wife and had locked himself in the toilet, officers revealed.
Ms Lee is said to have devised a plan to remove her ex-partner’s manhood after learning that, on top of relying on her earnings, he had also been seeing another woman behind her back when they were married.
She reportedly ‘seduced’ him and then grabbed his genitals before shearing it off with scissors, followed by both testicles.
She then allegedly poured acid on them and flushed them down the toilet.
