Here is more of the victim’s account of what happened, according to the Daily Mail:
The victim said that he was lying on the couch at around midnight when all of a sudden, Gregory started throwing things in the bedroom and turning his apartment on Bowman Street upside down.
The 59-year-old got up and went to the porch of the duplex where he lives to call the police, and that is when his 35-year-old former paramour pounced on him and yanked his genitals, the police report stated.
When the man tried to walk out of the house to get help, he said Gregory knocked him to the ground, injuring his face.
The man was able to walk to a local EMS where he was treated before being sent to the Cleveland Regional Medical Center. Officer M. L. McPherson, who wrote the police report, said that the victim’s “scrotum had been split open.” He also said that, “I was also able to observe one of the subject’s testicles protruding from the scrotum area.”
A urologist reportedly told cops that the victim’s injury could be fixed with “several stitches” and that no long-term damage was sustained during the incident.
When cops returned to the victim’s apartment, they arrested Gregory. She says that she was the victim in the attack and that the victim she allegedly castrated had a knife. On the way to the police station, cops say that Gregory looked “highly intoxicated,” and that she removed her jeans and began urinating in the back seat of the police vehicle.
Gregory has been charged with “malicious castration and assault causing serious bodily injury.” Her bond is set at $20,000. Her next court date is set for June 18th.
