A Florida man claims he blacked out when allegedly attacking his wife’s secret boyfriend, according to an arrest affidavit.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, in July 2019, the victim told a Gilchrist County 911 dispatcher that Alex Bonilla, 49, broke into his home and severed his penis. The victim told responding officers that Bonilla threatened to kill him if he resisted before taking him to his bedroom, tying him up, and cutting off his penis with scissors.
Bonilla, who allegedly took off with the victim’s penis, was apprehended hours after the 911 call. According to police, Bonilla broke into the home with a gun; two children were at the home at the time of the incident.
A few weeks before the incident, Bonilla reportedly caught his wife having sex with the victim, according to police. Bonilla told investigators he confronted the man and told him “you need to stay away from my wife and leave her alone.”
“The defendant stated he then blacked out and doesn’t remember anything from that point until he was at work and was arrested,” court documents read.
The victim said Bonilla entered his home without permission with a gun tucked under his arm and told the victim he was there to “fix something.” Bonilla then put a gun to the victim’s head and ordered him to go to a bedroom.
The suspect then allegedly pulled out a metal pipe and threatened to beat the victim, prompting the victim to fall to his knees and beg Bonilla to stop. Bonilla then forced the man to stand up and remove his pants, according to the arrest report.
“This is normal you, will not die today,”‘ Bonilla told the victim, according to the police report.
Bonilla allegedly tied a rubber band around the victim’s penis several times, then pulled out a pair of scissors.
“This is for all the women you have been having relationships with,” Bonilla allegedly said, then proceeded to cut the man’s private part.
The victim said he tried to get away and tried not to scream because his children were in the house, but the suspect threw him to the floor and his pushed knee into the man’s chest to stop him from fleeing.
Bonilla allegedly tried several times until he succeeded in cutting off the victim’s penis while getting frustrated at the blood gushing out. Bonilla warned the man not to say anything, police said.
“Don’t act this way, this is normal, and if you try to call the police, I will be out in two months and I will come back and finish this,” Bonilla allegedly said.
When Bonilla opened the bedroom door to leave, he allegedly found the victim’s daughter watching through a small opening outside of the door. Bonilla fled the residence with the man’s penis, which was never recovered.
Bonilla is expected to plead guilty on Thursday to kidnapping, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Check back for updates.
