Wife takes razor to man's genitals
Posted Thu, 06 Nov 2003
A Cambodian woman who suspected her husband was having affairs attempted to cut off his genitals with a razor blade in a jealous rage, a newspaper report said on Thursday.
The couple from downtown Phnom Penh — Mar Len (29) and her husband Kan Bunhou (26) — began arguing on Tuesday evening but neighbours stepped in to cool the dispute, the Kampuchea Thmei (New Cambodia) daily said.
Kan Bunthou told police that the pair then went to bed but he awoke when his wife began attacking him with a razor blade.
He managed to fend her off before she completed the job and fled, he said, adding that family members took him to hospital where he had received 12 stitches to repair the damage.
The newspaper said police were searching for Mar Len, who would be charged with attempted murder.
During the row she had accused Kan Bunthou, a cameraman who filmed karaoke DVDs, of infidelity with the actresses and singers he worked with, it said.
