A mother was shocked to see her husband grabbing a knife and cutting off her son’s private parts, according to police in Kenya.

Naivasha police said that they have arrested the man, who was not identified, after being accused of cutting off the 2-year-old boy’s private parts and biting him all over his body.

The man was charged with causing grievous bodily harm.

According to the police investigation, the victim’s mother married the suspect two months ago.

On Thursday, when the mother was preparing dinner, she asked her husband to wash his stepson.

The husband put his 2-year-old stepson into the bath of their home and began washing him.

At some point, the boy urinated in the bathtub.

The stepfather became extremely angry at the boy for urinating in the bathtub.

He stormed out of the bathroom and went to the kitchen.

He grabbed a knife and cut off the boy’s private parts.

He then bit him all over his body.

The mother tried to pull her son away from his stepfather but she was unable to stop the attack.

The woman ran out of the house and alerted her neighbors who arrived at the scene and rescued the boy.

The boy was taken to the Naivasha sub-county hospital, where he is said to be in stable condition.

The mother told police that she is shocked by her husband’s conduct as he never showed signs of being crazy and never before got angry.
