A woman accused of hacking her boyfriend’s p3nis and testicles off with scissors has revealed that she attacked him after he shared their sex tape with his friends.
Brenda Barattini, 26, an architect, was arrested for allegedly cutting off the genitals of rock musician Sergio Fernandez, 40, in an upmarket area of the Argentinian city of Cordoba in November 2017.
The victim claimed that his brutal injuries – in which 90% if his p3nis was allegedly sliced off – were the result of a ‘sex game gone wrong’.
But Barattini, speaking from her jail cell where she is being held before her trial, has now reportedly claimed she attacked Fernandez’s genitals because he shared an intimate video of the pair with his friends.
She told local media that she “wanted to hurt him there” but insisted that she did not amputate his testicles or his entire p3nis.
She told La Voz newspaper: “I cut his p3nis but not completely: I injured him. “I left to ask for help. I did not want anything to happen to him, besides, I was afraid of the blood.”
Barattini stated that she never denied the attack but was adamant that it was provoked from self-defence. She said that he had hurt her and damaged her psychologically and that he had treated her inhumanely.
Barattini said that although her response may not have been perfect, it was a response to what she perceived to be a major violation and attack.
One of the lawyers of the mutilated man, Felipe Trucco, said that his client is depressed after the ‘very dangerous and violent incident’ and he is still waiting for surgery.
Barattini is in prison without bail until her trial and reportedly said she regrets her decision.
If found guilty, she could face 15 years in prison.
