Alex Bonilla, 51 from Florida was so incensed after he discovered that a man was having sex with his wife that he according to officials “forcefully cut off the victim’s penis with a pair of scissors.”
The macabre attack occurred two months after Bonilla became aware of the infidelity.
According to investigators, Bonilla sprung his wife and the victim having sex in May, 2019.
Reportedly Bonilla charged his way into the man’s home who was a neighbor and then threatened him with a metal pipe and a handgun.
The man was forced into the bedroom where his penis was amputated.
After the deed Bonilla took off with the lifeless penis and raced back across the street to his own home WKMG reported.
The fate of the penis is unknown at this time.
If you can find the severed penis, they tend to be relatively easy to reattach compared to other body parts according to Paul Turek MD, FACS, FRSM, a board-certified physician with the American Board of Urology and microsurgeon.
“The penis is arteries, veins, nerves and the uretha,” he says. “So compared to say a finger, it’s a very basic organ; it’s like a simple car from the 60’s without a lot of electronics on it.”
The way the penis is severed impacts how easy it is to repair and reattach. If the cut is clean there is more likelihood of success.
Dr Turek also advises that after penis reattachment sexual function is usually possible.
“Men can have an orgasm without an erection, and men can have an erection without an orgasm, but if you’re missing both I’d say you’re probably going to be affected,” he said.
According to court documents deputies surrounded Bonilla’s home after the attack while one drove the victim to a local hospital.
Allegedly Bonilla said to the man; “This is normal, you will not die today,” as reported by the Smoking Gun.
In addition to the long prison sentence for his crime of passion, Bonilla has been ordered to pay more than $251,000.
He pleaded no contest last month to charges of kidnapping aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
