On Tuesday, June 7, Ann spoke to Somchai gently and started stroking him in a place where most men don’t mind to be touched. Then as he was really getting in the mood she whipped out a box cutter and attacked his penis.
Medics found the man in agony screaming with an ice compress held to his privates outside their rented room in Soi Nern Plab Wan.
The penis was still attached, but only by a thin skin and covered in blood. After emergency first aid the Bangkok man was rushed to Banglamung Hospital with his wife Ann in tow.
Ann – a native of Kamphaengphet who sells fried chicken – told medics from the Sawang Boriboon foundation that she had found out that her husband had been cheating on her with a trusted close friend. She lulled him into a false sense of security on Tuesday morning by stroking his genitals before attacking him with the box cutter. She said there was blood all over the bed and her husband was howling so she decided to call the medics.
Doctors said that Somchai had lost a lot of blood and would need close supervision. It was too early to tell whether he would regain full use of his penis as there was severe psychological trauma to contend with as well as the injury itself. They said they would have to wait and see.
