A woman in North Carolina in the United States of America has been taken into custody after she allegedly tied up her husband at knife-point and cut off his penis.

Victoria Frabutt was arrested by local authorities on Tuesday morning for allegedly attacking her husband James Frabutt.

A spokesperson from the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that officers were called to the couple’s Newport home just before 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

When they arrived, James, 61, claimed that his wife had pulled out a knife and tied him up inside their North Carolina home.

Victoria, 56, allegedly proceeded to cut off her husband’s penis, which was eventually recovered by authorities and put on ice, according to the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office.

James was then transported to the Vidant Medical Center in Greenville while authorities took Victoria into custody.

At this time, it is unclear whether doctors were able to reattach James’ penis and why Victoria allegedly severed her husband’s body part.

Victoria was charged with malicious castration and kidnapping. She is currently being held at the Carteret County Jail under a $100,000 bond.

Victoria is expected to appear in court on Wednesday, Sept. 11, the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office announced.
