Garden Grove - A 48-year-old woman allegedly cut her husband’s penis after she drugged his dinner, and then tied him to a bed. Afterwards, the wife threw the penis in a garbage disposal, turning it on. About 9 p.m. on Monday, the victim’s wife called 911.
Garden Grove police officers arrived at a house on 14000 Flower Street and found a man tied to a bed, bleeding from his crotch. Police untied the 51-year-old victim, who was taken to UCI Medical Center and underwent emergency surgery.
According to Los Angeles Times, suspect Catherine Kieu Becker, arrested on charges of aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse, told officers “he deserved it.” Police said Becker and her husband, who was not identified, were going through a divorce.
Becker confessed to police that she drugged her husband’s dinner to make him sleepy, and then tied him to a bed. When the husband awoke, she cut off his penis with a knife. Becker then tossed it in the garbage disposal and turned the switch on.
The victim told police that he suspected something wrong with his food. He lied down, and woke up tied to the bed while his wife was taking his clothes off. Then his wife allegedly cut off his penis. Police searched the house and recovered weapons, a knife and a rope.
In a Los Angeles Times report, Police Lt. Jeff Nightengale said, “The severe nature of the crime led detectives to classify it as ‘aggravated mayhem’, an offense punishable by up to life in prison.” “The intention by this person was to permanently deprive this victim of his genitalia,” he added.
“You’re not just depriving a person of a member or portion of their body or disfiguring them. You’re doing something that’s so egregious we’re not sure what’s going to happen: If they're going to be able to reattach this or repair this person after such a violent attack,” Nightengale also said.
The husband went into surgery before police could get more information.
