Jealous woman castrates husband


She was cut to the quick so she cut “it” off.

A woman sliced off her husband’s manhood in a fit of jealous rage shortly after they checked into a motel in Pasay City before midnight on Sunday.

Despite his injury, Rodolfo del Rosario, a 51-year-old businessman, managed to bring himself to Pasay City General Hospital where doctors said he remained under observation.

They were unable, however, to reattach the severed portion of his organ because investigators had yet to find it.

Also, the only person who could tell them where it was—Radina, the victim’s 34-year-old wife—fled right after the incident, taking with her the bladed weapon she used to mutilate her husband.

Senior Supt. Rodolfo Llorca, Pasay police chief, said that Radina was likely to face criminal charges, including serious physical injury.

Del Rosario, meanwhile, told the police that his wife had been accusing him of having an affair with another woman.

The incident happened shortly after the couple from Tondo, Manila, checked into one of the rooms at Galaxy Lodge on Taft Avenue in Pasay City.

Llorca said a staffer of the motel, Nestor Daganato, told investigators that he showed the Del Rosarios to their room at 11:50 p.m. on Sunday.

Daganato added that about 30 minutes later, he saw Radina rushing out of the room, followed by her husband who was naked.

He said that he noticed that Del Rosario was walking awkwardly and had covered his privates with a piece of cloth that had blood on it.

Daganato added that the victim shouted for help and begged him to bring him to the hospital as his organ had been cut off.

As Del Rosario asked the motel staffer for help, his wife ran out of the establishment, flagged down a taxi cab and escaped.

“The room boy left for a second and when he returned to the room, the victim [was gone]. He apparently decided to bring himself to the hospital,” Llorca said.

At Pasay City General Hospital, attending physicians told the police that the victim was still under observation. The damage to his organ, however, could no longer be reversed, they said.

Llorca said that after the incident, investigators went to the room where the victim and his wife checked in but they found out that the crime scene had been cleaned. In fact, the room was already occupied by another customer, he added.

The police learned through a brief interview with Del Rosario that right after he and Radina checked into the motel, he fell asleep because he was drunk. It was at this time that his wife cut off his organ using a bladed weapon.

Sunday’s incident was not the first “below the belt” crime in Metro Manila.

In 2008, traffic enforcer Joelito Bayabado had his manhood cut off by his wife who had long suspected him of being unfaithful to her.

Doctors, however, managed to reattach the severed organ and Bayabado decided not to press charges against his wife for the sake of their four children.

In the United States, John Wayne Bobbitt became an international celebrity in June 1993 after his wife, Lorena, sliced his penis off.

Lorena, who accused her husband of abusing her physically, emotionally and sexually, was eventually found not guilty of malicious wounding due to temporary insanity.
