Woman Arrested In Vicious Scrotum Attack
Cops: Vigorous squeezing dislodged man's testicle
JUNE 5--A North Carolina woman is facing a malicious castration charge after she allegedly squeezed the scrotum of a 59-year-old acquaintance so vigorously that one of the victim’s testicles was dislodged, according to police.
The victim told Shelby Police Department officers that he was attacked early Saturday morning by Joyce Maxine Gregory, with whom he had been arguing in his apartment. The man said that when he departed the residence to dial 911, he was confronted by the 35-year-old Gregory. According to cops, Gregory and the man had previously been in “some sort of a romantic relationship.”
As detailed in a wince-inducing police report, the victim told cops that Gregory “grabbed him by his scrotum” in a vise-like grip. While he was able to “jerk away from her grip,” the man freed himself after Gregory had succeeded in squeezing a testicle out of his scrotum.
Officer M. L. McPherson reported that the victim’s “scrotum had been split open,” adding that, “I was also able to observe one of the subject’s testicles protruding from the scrotum area.”
Following the attack, the man was able to walk to a nearby EMS station, where he was initially treated before being transported to the Cleveland Regional Medical Center. A urologist told police that the man’s scrotum injury “could be fixed with several stitches and that no serious long term damage had occurred.”
Pictured in the above mug shot, Gregory was subsequently arrested at the home where she had quarreled with the victim. Cops observed “blood on both the floor of the porch and on the siding of the residence.”
Along with malicious castration, Gregory was charged with assault causing serious bodily injury (both counts are felonies). Now locked up in the county jail in lieu of $20,000 bond, Gregory is scheduled for a June 18 court hearing.
While en route to jail, cops noted, Gregory--who appeared “highly intoxicated on some type of narcotic”--removed her pants and “urinated in the back seat of the patrol vehicle.” (3 pages)
