A man has been hospitalised after biting off his own penis.
The man (26), a resident of Brooklyn, New York, was discovered by police behind a building, bleeding profusely.
He was found to have bitten off the tip (presumably the glans) of his own penis, apparently by contortion.
He is now recovering in hospital. It is not clear what became of the portion of his penis he gnashed off.
Police are frank about the mystifying nature of the case: “How he did it? Limber, I guess. Not the work of a sane mind.”
He was previously accused of violating a 13-year-old girl, and was later sentenced to two months for misdemeanours.
The man apparently had sexual issues, so possibly this was an attempt to set matters right?
