A woman in Indonesia allegedly cut off her boyfriend’s penis after he threatened to leak their sex tapes when she refused his requests for sex. The 28-year-old man was taken to the hospital following the attack at a hotel in Sibolga in North Sumatra, Indonesia. The victim is now in intensive care.
According to local media, police allege that the 28-year-old woman, whose initials are AST, severed his penis after he attempted to initiate sex when she was ‘not in the mood’ on Saturday.
Sibolga Police Chief Taryono Rajarja stated that:
“Based on the suspect’s statement, they had been in a relationship for around seven months. So, they made an appointment to meet at a hotel, then the man asked to have sex, after which the woman refused. When he was denied sex, the man threatened to spread the videos of their intimate activities. Then, when he was ready to take a shower, the suspect carried out the attack. She took a knife belonging to the man and cut off his penis. The suspect assaulted the victim because the victim threatened the suspect that he would spread their sex tape.”
The man’s howls of pain were reportedly heard by witnesses as the woman severed his penis. The couple, who had been together for more than half a year, was not heard arguing before the incident, according to witnesses. Evi Wahyuni Siregar, a receptionist at the hotel, said the woman approached him and asked for medical assistance as her boyfriend was bleeding.
The woman has been arrested, but no charges have been filed against her yet. She remained held at the Sibolga Police station while the police investigate the case. It is still unclear what charges the woman could face.
This type of attack is not uncommon in Indonesia, with reports of women committing similar attacks due to being abused or threatened. In 2018, an Indonesian woman reportedly cut off her boyfriend’s penis when she found out he was cheating on her. In 2015, a woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison after cutting off her husband’s penis and then throwing it in a well, claiming that he had repeatedly abused her.
In this case, the man is currently in intensive care, and the woman is awaiting possible charges. The incident has raised concerns about the dangers of revenge porn and the potential consequences of using intimate material as leverage. This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of consent and respect in any sexual encounter.
