An angry and jealous wife has been arrested after cutting off her cheating husband’s penis with a 12-inch-long knife.
Karuna Sanusan, 24, told police she waited until husband Siripan, 40, had fallen asleep then aroused him – before slashing his organ with the 12-inch long carving knife.
The scorned wife then hurled the detached penis out of the bedroom window to prevent it from being found easily while Siripan was left in a bloodbath.
Neighbours heard the husband's howls of pain and called police who arrived at 6.20am today at their home in Si Racha, Thailand. They scooped up the severed penis and put it in an ice box for surgeons to try to re-attach but medics said that it would be impossible.
Siripan was rushed to the nearby Samitivej Sriracha Hospital while Karuna was arrested and held in custody over the attack.
The wife (pictured above) , originally from Cambodia, was videoed by reporters sitting calmly as she was interviewed by police. She told officers that she had recently discovered her husband had been seeing different women and hatched the revenge plot to cut off his penis.
She said: "Me and my husband work together selling organic vegetables at a stall. Before this happened I became suspicious he was having an affair. I always saw him flirting with a lot of girls and I had an idea of what he was doing. Then I found out that he was secretly going with other women. This made me very angry. I was full of anger and couldn't relax. I was so angry inside. I planned to do this. I aroused him in the morning while he was absent-minded, then used the knife to cut off his penis. I threw it out of the window."
Police Colonel Somkid Boonlert, the deputy head of Sriracha Police Station, said that officers had received an emergency call about a man's penis being cut off with a knife.
They arrested the wife and she is being held at the station for legal processing.
Colonel Boonlert added: "Police arrived along with rescue staff and found the man severely injured. From the initial investigation it was discovered that the husband and wife had a career together selling vegetables. She had an idea that he was seeing other women and she took revenge. The man had lost a lot of blood. He is now under close medical supervision. He will never be able to use his penis in the same way again. Doctors said the cells in the penis are dead as it had been out of his body for too long. He will be disabled for the rest of his life. Police officers have detained Miss Karuna for legal action and she is being prevented from seeing her husband."
