Florida man chops off neighbor's penis with a pair of scissors after allegedly catching him in bed with his wife
Alex Cesar Bonilla, 49, has been charged with two counts of cruelty toward a child, and a count each of burglary, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, false imprisonment, and use of a firearm
A Florida man was arrested on Sunday, July 14, after he broke into his neighbor's house and cut his penis off before running away with the severed body part.
According to the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office, 49-year-old Alex Cesar Bonilla, was charged with burglary, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, false imprisonment, and use of a firearm after authorities responded to the mobile home of the victim, whose name has not been revealed.
The man told the deputies that Bonilla, who was the victim's neighbor, barged into his house with a gun and threatened to kill him. There were two children present inside the house when the incident took place. The suspect reportedly took the neighbor to the bedroom and tied him up at gunpoint before assaulting him.
"On Sunday, July 14, 2019, at 11:02 am, Gilchrist County Communications Division received a call in reference to an 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," a press release from the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office said.
Bonilla took a pair of scissors and proceeded to chop off the man's penis. Although the motive behind the crime is still under investigation, the police believe that it could have something to do with the fact that the suspect "was found to have caught the victim and [Bonilla's] wife during sexual intercourse" in May, NBC-2 reported.
Bonilla was arrested from the Alliance Dairies in Brandford, where he worked. He was being held at a Gilchrist County jail on a $1.25 million bond. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was expected to recover from his injuries. The investigators did not elaborate on the nature of the victim's injuries.
The news release added that "a county-wide search for additional evidence was conducted with no result."
