PALM SPRINGS (CBS) — A 67-year-old woman tried to cut off her husband’s penis with a pair of scissors, a Palm Springs police spokeswoman said Sunday.

The incident occurred at about 5:45 p.m. Saturday when officers were sent to the residence in the 1700 block of Rochelle Road in Palm Springs, said police Sgt. Melissa Desmarais.

“Officers made contact with the 62-year-old male victim, who reported that his wife had attempted to sever his penis with scissors, resulting in injuries to the area,” Desmarais said.

“The victim received medical attention for treatment of a non-life threatening wound and has subsequently been released from the hospital,” she said.

Police arrested Virginia Valdez for suspicion of mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and spousal abuse, the sergeant said.

Valdez was booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning on Saturday and released today when she posted $100,000 bail, jail records show.

    In this case it appears she headed for the stem, not the testicles, but your point is understood.

  4. The Big Logic says:

    With scissors that big, I wonder how she missed her target. Must’ve been aiming at a shorty.
