A man was arrested after mutilating his wife’s private parts as punishment for her cheating.
The 33-year-old man of Hammanskraal, South Africa, cut off the private parts of his 29-year-old wife.
The man, who was suspecting that his wife was cheating on him, called two of his wife’s close friends and told them what he had done.
One of the friends immediately called the victim’s neighbor to come over and help her.
Neighbor Mmaphefo Sebidi, 35, said that the husband did not run away when people arrived to his house, and he admitted to what he has done.
Some residents, mostly women, began assaulting the husband and threw bricks at him.
Paramedics soon arrived and took the woman to a hospital. When police arrived, they had to rescue the man from the angry residents, who were beating him.
The suspect was escorted to a police van after additional officers were called to the scene. The husband was also taken to the hospital for treatment before being arrested.
The suspect has been charged with attempted murder and is in police custody, according to police Lieutenant Sarah Lesabane.
