Police in the northern province of Bac Giang on Tuesday arrested a 29-year-old man accused of cutting off the penis of his wife's lover.
Nguyen Van Huan is now investigated on charges of “deliberately inflicting injuries,” local media reported.
Police said Huan, a stone sculptor, had secretly followed his wife on suspicion that she was having an affair.
On September 5, he caught her with another man in a hotel room. Huan allegedly cut off the lover's penis.
Surgeons at Bac Giang General Hospital have reattached the severed penis, but it will take several days before they can find out if the procedure was really successful.
