BARCELONA – A restaurant worker in Barcelona has been sentenced to prison for cutting off her boss’s penis. Although the woman first claimed that he tried to rape her, the Catalan police conclude that it was a very different story.
The incident happened on the morning of June 1, in a bar in the Catalan municipality of Sant Andreu de la Barca. According to statements by the woman, the man harassed her several times and forced her to perform sexual acts. However, when the owner of the bar harassed the woman again on Tuesday morning, the woman had enough. She grabbed a knife and cut off her boss´s penis.

Woman convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm by slicing boss´s penis
El Mundo reports on Thursday evening that the court decided to impose a provisional prison sentence on the woman. According to the police investigation, the man did not try to rape his employee and her argument that she acted in self-defense did not hold.

The police even conclude that the man and his female employee had an affair. This was initially ruled out because the man has a partner who currently resides in Bangladesh.
