A Vietnamese man is recovering from a penis reattachment operation after the husband of his mistress allegedly sliced off his genitalia.
“The patient’s condition is stable, but it will take some days to learn if the function returns to the victim’s genitalia,” said Dr. Nguyen Van Dong, of Bac Giang General Hospital, in the country’s northern province, adding it took half a day to reattach the penis.
The suspect, 29-year-old Nguyen Van Huan, from Bac Giang province, began stalking his wife after he began suspecting that she was having an affair, Thanh Nien Daily reported.
He allegedly caught her Sept. 5 with an unnamed 32-year-old man at a hotel, where he allegedly chopped off the man’s penis.
The penis was found two hours later 200 meters (yards) away from the hotel after the victim’s relatives convinced Huan to reveal its location, Vietnam Net news site reported.
Huan, a stone sculptor, is being investigated on charges of “deliberately inflicting injuries.”
