“PHNOM PENH, Cambodia – A Cambodian woman stabbed her husband’s penis with a knife during an argument in which she accused him of being a violent drunk, police said Monday.
Tuy Narin, 35, attacked 37-year-old Chhun Saran earlier this month in Kandal province near the capital Phnom Penh, said Mang Penh, a local police officer.
Tuy Narin called her husband a drunkard, prompting him to retaliate by throwing a sandal at her, Mang Penh said. Tuy Narin’s mother and two sisters then wrestled the outnumbered husband to the floor and his angry wife stabbed him with a knife, the police officer said.
The victim, who appeared to have been drinking, required seven stitches at a local hospital but the injury was “not life-threatening,” he added.
The assault happened on Oct. 9, according to Koh Santepheap (Island of Peace) newspaper.
Chhun Saran withdrew a complaint against his wife after relatives intervened and urged the couple to reconcile, Mang Penh said. ”
A couple of thoughts to share:
1) What happened to the sisters and the mother-in-law? How did they escape punishment?
2) How big are the stitches? Seven sounds like a large number.
3) If I used the word “penis” in the title of this blog I could potentially have increased traffic to the site. I didn’t because I am afraid to find out who uses the search term “stabbed penis.”
4) If I ever am involved in a similar situation I am going to replace all of the steak knives with butter knives.
