Police: Wife Tried To Sever Husband's Penis With Scissors
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) - Police say a 69-year-old woman from Palm Springs has been arrested after her husband reported that she tried to cut off his penis with a pair of scissors.
Palm Springs police said in a statement Sunday that Virginia Valdez was arrested on suspicion of mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and spousal abuse.
Online jail records say she was released Sunday and is scheduled to appear in court next month.
The 62-year-old husband, whose name was not released, called police Saturday night and when officers came to his house he said his wife had attempted to sever his penis with scissors.
The statement says officers recovered the scissors and arrested Valdez.
Police say the man was treated at a hospital for injuries in the penis area and released.
