that 41-year-old Fei Lin of Niqiao, Zhejiang province was asleep in his bed around 4 a.m. when four masked men broke into his home and threw a bag over his head.
"They put something over my head and pulled down my trousers and then they ran off," Lin is quoted
in the Daily Star
. "I was so shocked I didn't feel a thing-- then I saw I was bleeding and my penis was gone."
The rural migrant worker was rushed to a nearby hospital. Emergency workers searched the site of the gruesome attack for his penis, but they could not find it.
It is believed that Lin was targeted because he was having affairs with a number of local married women. Lin denies the accusations.
The thieves who 'ripped off' Lin's penis are still at large.
