Man Stabbed In Scrotum With Hypodermic Needle
October 11, 2011--In the month’s most wince-producing assault, a Kansas man was stabbed in the scrotum with a hypodermic needle, which broke off inside the 39-year-old victim’s body.
According to a Wichita Police Department report, the victim told cops that the stabbing occurred during an argument with the needle wielder. Cops believe that the attacker is a female acquaintance--or girlfriend--of the man with the punctured scrotum.
Investigators reported that the victim, who was not cooperative, was admitted to St. Francis Hospital for surgery. A CAT scan “showed part of needle broke off inside scrotum,” the report noted.
Police have made no arrests in connection with last Wednesday’s stabbing, which has been classified as aggravated assault, a felony.
