Argentinan police have arrested a woman and accused her of chopping off a man’s penis with garden shears, as reported by New York Post.
It all started when Brenda Barattini, 26, allowed 40-year-old Sergio into her home. The 40-year-old is allegedly a friend of Barattini’s brother. According to the woman’s lawyer, Carlos Nayi, Sergio attempted to sexually assault Barattini, leading to the gruesome incident, as reported by Metro UK.
“There’s justification for what happened. The information I’ve received is that she was the victim of a sex attack,” he said. “She let him into her apartment because he’s someone who’s in a rock band and is an acquaintance of her brother but once inside, instead of removing a musical instrument as he was supposed to, he attacked her sexually and she assumed a defensive attitude. Whether or not she acted excessively is for the courts to decide.”
Sergio’s attorney, Eduardo Perez, told a completely different story to authorities.
He said his client was resting peacefully when Barattini used the garden shears to remove his penis.

Perez also alleged that the duo had been romantically involved for quite some time.
“This was a peaceful encounter,” he said. “They were in the middle of things. He wasn’t asleep. They began with a sexual game in which he was blindfolded.”
Prosecutor Bettina Croppi called Sergio’s injuries “very serious” and noted that the victim was not blindfolded when police arrived.
“What I can say is that the man wasn’t tied up when police arrived,” she said. “It’s very likely he’s lost the ability to father children.”
Barattini is currently undergoing a battery of tests to determine if she was raped.
