Jealous wife cuts off husband’s penis in Pasig City

MANILA, Philippines ? For Joelito Bayabado, the good times may be over.

Bayabado, 32, a Pasig City traffic enforcer, was rushed to the hospital before dawn yesterday after his wife Lenly cut off his penis in a jealous rage.

PO2 Rolly Lipata of the Pasig City police said the incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. yesterday in the bedroom of the couple?s house in Nagpayong I, Barangay Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City.

Doctors worked for hours to reattach the cut portion.

Lenly, the police said, had long suspected her husband of infidelity. When the opportunity came early yesterday morning, she cut off her husband?s organ with a knife.

Bayabado was rushed to the Rizal Medical Center by his relatives. A hospital employee said the victim begged the doctors to reattach his penis. Police said Bayabado would not sue his wife for the sake of the family. The couple has four children.

This is not the first incident of mutilation by an aggrieved wife. Perhaps the most well-known case is that of John Wayne Bobbitt, an American, whose penis was cut off by his wife Lorena in 1993. His organ was reattached after an operation.

Charged with malicious wounding, Lorena told a jury that the physical and emotional abuse she suffered from her husband caused her to snap. The jury found her innocent because of temporary insanity.

Several Filipino women have ?done a Bobbitt? over the years. In 1995, Eufrociña Pader of Quezon City cut off the penis of her lover Celestino Baris after he said he wanted to return to his wife.

The following year, Sally Guerrero of Pateros nearly castrated her partner Dennis San Pedro for seeing another woman. Doctors were able to reattach his organ. San Pedro eventually pardoned Guerrero, with whom he has a daughter. With Inquirer Research
