A Martorell court has decreed this Thursday afternoon provisional prison, communicated and without bail for the woman who cut off her boss’s penis last Monday morning to avoid, according to the Mossos, being raped. Born in Bangladesh, she is charged with a crime of serious injury with a dangerous instrument. According to the Ser, the Mossos rule out that she was sexually assaulted.
The woman cut off her boss’s penis at the bar where he worked, ‘El sibarita de la barca’. Shortly after he turned himself in to the local police. The Mossos took over the case and arrested her for a crime of injuries. The events occurred on Monday night in a bar in Sant Andreu de la Barca, a town near Barcelona. The man is the owner of the establishment and the woman, an employee.
According to the testimony that the woman gave to the Police, she acted in self-defense to prevent her boss from sexually assaulting her, an end that the Catalan Police have ruled out after investigating the events and after taking statements from both of them. The victim told the police that he wanted to rape her on the premises, at dawn, and defended himself, taking a large kitchen knife and cutting off his penis. The woman, in her statement to the police, said that her boss had been harassing her for months and forcing her to have non-consensual sex. “We are not aware of any prior complaint from her,” Oscar Carreras, the head of the Mossos police station in Martorell (Barcelona), reported yesterday. “The investigation is focused on finding out what happened inside the bar,” he added. As reported this Thursday afternoon by the Ser, the Mossos have ruled out that the man sexually assaulted her or tried to, as the detainee declared.
Judicial sources have reported that the court on duty only decides on the personal situation of the detainee and that the investigation is in charge of the examining court 2 of Martorell. Neighbors in the area pointed out that the woman and the man were sentimental couples.
