Woman Charged With "Malicious Castration"

I had no idea there was such a charge. I pray every state has one.

Guess she didn't like the sweater he got her for Christmas:

A woman attacked a man in his genitals during a Christmas party, injuring him badly enough that he needed 50 stitches, authorities said Friday. Rebecca Arnold Dawson, 34, was charged with malicious castration in a fight early Tuesday at a party hosted by the 38-year- old man's girlfriend, police said.

All three were heavily intoxicated, police Chief Frank Powers said.

About as unnecessary a statement as describing a serial killer as a "quiet type who kept mainly to himself."

Dawson is accused of grabbing the man's genitals. Police said a weapon was not used. He declined to elaborate.

Does anyone understand that bit? A weapon was not used... and he declines to elaborate further. What more elaboration is needed exactly? Did he decline to specify what sort of weapon was not used in the attack?

"I believe he needed more than 50 stitches to repair the damage, but he is back home at this point," police Cpl. Brad Stevens said. "All we can tell you is that the injury was done with her hands."

Still not getting the elaboration the reporter feels necessary to properly explain this scenario. It's as if the reporter is baffled at how an unarmed woman could have wreaked such havoc on a man's genitals.

Has this reporter ever seen a guy's genitals? They're not made out of fine Italian marble, you know.


Dawson does not have a listed phone number.

I swear to God, this reporter is just plain wacky. An odd conception of what he/she thinks need to be in the article. "Hey... maybe my readers are interested in dating this woman...? Better tell them the bad news: she's unlisted."

State law describes malicious castration as cutting off, maiming or disfiguring a person's genitals with the intent to hurt or render the victim impotent.

There you go, in case you were curious.

One more bit of weirdness from this reporter:

The castration arrest was the first of its kind in Lillington, a town of about 3,000 roughly 30 miles south of Raleigh, Powers said.

I just think that's an odd and pretty obvious detail. How many states have such a law, and further, how many genital-targeted attacks occur each year? Not many. Pretty much anywhere an attack like this happens it's going to be the first time.

Weird story reported by a weird reporter.

Thanks to Brown Line.
