Germany — Angry that his teenage daughter was dating an older man, a German dad went to the 57-year-old’s home and castrated him with a bread knife, police said.
Helmut Seifert, originally from Russia, recently pled guilty to attacking Phillip Genscher, according to London’s Telegraph.
“I saw it as my duty as a father,” the 47-year-old father allegedly told police.
With the help of two of his co-workers, he went to Genscher’s home in Bielefeld, in northern Germany.
“[Genscher] was forced to remove his trousers and, fully conscious, he was castrated,” police said, the Telegraph reports. “The severed testicles were taken away by the perpetrator.”
The father has not revealed the identity of the men who helped him. He is expected to go on trial next year.
