Husband could face more prison time than rapist after chopping the man’s penis off for assaulting his wife: Report

A 27-year-old man who reportedly chopped off another man’s penis after catching him raping his wife may end up facing more prison time than the alleged rapist.

According to a report by MailOnline, on October 13, a woman was walking toward her home, only 1,000 feet away, after leaving a restaurant when suspect Dmitry Ivchenko, 25, allegedly attacked her from behind and pulled her into nearby bushes. Around ten minutes later, the woman’s husband, whose name has not been released, also left the restaurant.

As the husband walked home, he apparently heard noises coming from the bushes. When he went over to investigate, he allegedly saw his wife being raped, the outlet reports. The incident reportedly happened in Shevchenkovo, a village in the eastern Kharkiv area of Ukraine.

“The suspect caught up with his victim near her apartment block and raped her,” Snizhana Vodolazska, a spokeswoman for Kupiansk Region Police Department, said, according to Unilad.

The husband confronted Ivchenko and began punching him over the head. The husband then allegedly pulled out a Swiss army knife and cut off Ivchenko’s penis.

“The husband lost the ability to control his actions. He did not understand what he was doing,” the husband’s lawyer, Dmitry Spaskin, said.

“After the incident, [the husband] was in a state of shock and just walked away. He walked about 13 kilometers and reached a neighboring village. There he met an acquaintance and asked to drive him to a police station.”

The husband was eventually charged with causing bodily harm and placed on house arrest while awaiting trial. The alleged rapist is currently in the hospital for treatment under police surveillance. He’s facing rape charges.

The husband faces up to eight years in prison for his reported actions, while Ivchenko faces up to five years. Neighbors in the village where the attack occurred, however, have been showing support for the husband.

“Ivchenko tried to hit on me but I told him to stop. Then he said, ‘You will regret it,’ area resident Hanna Khaustova said, according to MailOnline. “I believe any girl from our village could have become his victim. If he had not done it the rapist would have continued to assault girls.”

Meanwhile, the victim has physically recovered but will require long-term counseling to heal emotionally and mentally, the outlet reports.
