Woman arrested for biting man’s penis

Johannesburg - A woman was arrested in Soweto on Monday after she allegedly bit off a portion of a man's penis, Gauteng police said.

“She was arrested at the police station after she followed the complainant to the station,” said Constable Sibusiso Chauke.

The two met at a tavern in Meadowlands, Soweto on Saturday.

“The victim, aged 38, proposed to the suspect and she agreed. They also agreed to go to the victim's place of residence to have sexual intercourse,” Chauke said.

On arrival at the house, the woman told the man to unzip his trousers so she can kiss his private parts before intercourse.

“He did so and she bit off a front portion of his private parts. He managed to push her (away)... He was taken to hospital and was released today (Monday),” said Chauke.

Chauke said the woman heard about the man's intention to open a case against her, and followed him to the police station.

“The doctor's medical report indicated that she bit him on a very dangerous portion of the private parts, and that he could have died, hence the attempted murder charge.”

The woman, aged 39, is expected to appear in court soon.
