A WOMAN accused of slicing a mans genitals with a box cutter, because she believed he molested her 2-year-old son, has been arrested.
Police were called to a mobile home in Johnson County, Indiana, where they spoke with a man, who had blood stains and a cut on his penis, Fox59 reports.
The man claimed his girlfriend’s mother - Bonita Lynn Vela - had held him captive, refusing to release him until he allowed her to cut his penis.
Police said Ms Vela told him "he wanted to scar him so that he would have to look at it every time that he had sex in the future."
In a written statement, he described Ms Vela as "extremely mad" and "out of control" and said she threatened to turn him in for molestation, in spite of the man’s denials.
He told investigators Ms Vela was "going to take him out, shoot him in the head and tie him to a tree so the animals (would) eat him." He said she then told him to drop his pants so she could "cut his (expletive)". If he didn’t comply, "she was going to have people hold him down and she would cut (his penis) all the way off," the report said.
Ms Vela said she had been at a friend’s house where she smoked marijuana, and was unsure "if that was the only drug she ingested".
Around 3am she had a friend fetch her daughter’s boyfriend, so she could demand to know if he had molested her son. Her "anger just grew" throughout the encounter, the report said.
Ms Vela’s initial efforts to draw blood failed, after which she switched to a box cutter. The man said Ms Vela told him to "choose his life or his penis".
Ms Vela claims she had the box cutter in her hand, but the man knocked it away and that that is how the man’s penis was cut. Ms Vela asked police "several times how (the man) was doing and wondered if he was going to ‘make it,’" the report said. She told investigators that she never intended to hurt him and wanted to scare him.
Ms Vela was taken to the Johnson County Jail on charges of criminal confinement with a deadly weapon and battery with a deadly weapon.
Police said the investigation into the molestation claim is ongoing. ..Source.. by News.com.au
Indiana woman Bonita Lynn Vela accused of slicing 18-year-old's penis with box cutter
Franklin, Ind. (Indy Star) -- An Indiana woman held a man against his will at a house trailer Saturday and sliced his penis with a box-cutter, police said.
Sheriff's deputies arrested Bonita Lynn Vela, 35, Franklin, on preliminary charges of battery with a deadly weapon and criminal confinement with a deadly weapon.
Vela told police she was suspicious that the 18-year-old Avon man had molested her 2-year-old son. The man was adamant in conversation with police he had done no such thing, according to a police report, and Vela admitted to police that her suspicions developed after she had been smoking marijuana. The woman said she was unsure whether she had ingested any other drugs before the incident, police said.
Two other people helped hold the Avon man in the trailer in the 300 block of East Jefferson Street, according to police, but no other arrests appeared to have been made this morning.
The Avon man, described as the boyfriend of one of Vela's daughters, told police Vela held him in the trailer for three and a half hours. He told police the woman was "out of control" and initially told him she had called friends with guns to come "take him out," according to the report. Vela told the man he would be tied to a tree, shot in the head and then left to be eaten by animals, the victim told police.
Then the woman forced the man to drop his pants, the man said, and told him she might allow him to leave alive if he allowed her to cut his penis. Vela told the man she "wanted to scar him so that he would have to look at it every time that he had sex in the future," according to the police report.
The woman initially began stabbing at the man's penis with a fork in efforts to draw blood but was unsuccessful, the man said. She then found a box-cutter and "cut him deep," said the man, who showed police his injuries.
At one point, the man told police, the woman told him "he would have to choose his life or his penis," according to the police report. The woman finally let the man go after cutting him, he said.
The man remained fearful that Vela and her acquaintances "will go to great lengths to hurt or kill him," he told police. He also said he feared someone had used a cellphone to video-record the incident.
Vela was being held in the Johnson County Jail on $28,000 bond.
The man was taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injury. ..Source.. by Staff
