Bonilla told his victim before attacking him, 'You are not going to die, but you are going to have something to remember this for your whole life'
A 51-year-old man from Florida, who allegedly used a pair of scissors to cut off his wife's lover's penis, pleaded guilty on Thursday, February 25, for the July 2019 attack. The latest reports have revealed that Alex Bonilla "blacked out" while attacking the other man.
According to Smoking Gun, Bonilla tied up the man in his bedroom, before attacking and said, "You are not going to die, but you are going to have something to remember this for your whole life." The accused will face up to 30 years of imprisonment if convicted.
Who is Alex Bonilla?
Bonilla is an emigrant from El Salvador. He came to the US in 1990. He is said to have lived across the street from the victim, who is married with two kids. Bonilla reportedly resided with his 35-year-old second wife and the couple share three children together.
On July 14, Bonilla reportedly broke into his neighbor's home and threatened the alleged victim with a gun. A press release from Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office said, "On Sunday, July 14, 2019, at 11:02 am, Gilchrist County Communications Division received a call in reference to armed burglary. Units were dispatched at 11:04, while the Dispatcher gathered further information. It was determined that the suspect had broken into the residence and the victim had been held at gunpoint, tied up, taken to a different room and mutilated by the intruder."
Bonilla is facing charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for the July 2019 attack.
Victim recollects the gruesome incident
The unidentified victim, recollecting the events from the day of the attack, said that Bonilla showed up at his house with a 9mm handgun tucked under his arm. He told the man, who was allegedly having an affair with his wife, “I came here to fix something." The victim further added that Bonilla led him to the bedroom and threatened to strike him with a metal pipe before removing his pants. He said, "You are not going to die, but you are going to have something to remember this for your whole life. This is normal, you will not die today."
Bonilla allegedly put on a pair of gloves and "tied a rubber band" at the base of the victim's penis "several times to cut off the circulation.” Later, he pulled a pair of scissors out and said, "This is for all the women you have been having relationships with" before cutting off three-quarters of the victim's penis.
Reports also state that Bonilla even warned the victim, saying, "Don’t act this way, this is normal. And if you try to call the police, I will be out in two months and I will come back and finish this.”
The victim noted when Bonilla left the room, he saw that his oldest daughter lying "on the ground by the bottom of the door watching through the crack between the floor and the bottom of the door.”
The victim's penis still not recovered
Reportedly, the victim's penis has never been recovered and he told the probation officer, "Urinating and the ability to have sex with his wife has been messed up for the rest of his life.” He even noted that he "will never have any sensation in his penis again.”
