Woman cuts off boyfriend's genitals with garden shears for allegedly sharing sex tape with friends

Sergio Fernandez was allegedly alone at his home when Brenda Barattini went there in November 2017 and mutilated his member with a pair of scissors.

A 26-year-old woman has been accused of cutting off the genitals of her boyfriend using garden shears and the reason behind the violent act is because the man allegedly shared the sex tape the couple had made, with his friends. 

Brenda Barattini took matters into her own hands by attacking her 40-year-old boyfriend Sergio Fernandez in November last year while he was sleeping. The assault left blood all over his home, says a report in the Mirror.

The incident took place in the Argentinean city of Cordoba and it left Fernandez with almost 90% of his penis cut off. The 26-year-old architect has come forward now and revealed why she attacked her lover, in an interview that was conducted in the jail where she is currently being held in pre-trial detention.

Barattini told one reporter: "I cut his penis but not completely; I injured him. It wasn't complete; I injured him. I left to ask for help. I did not want anything to happen to him. Besides, I was afraid of the blood."

She then added that Fernandez had hurt her feelings deeply by allegedly leaking an intimate video they had made of themselves, to his friends. In the interview to the La Voz newspaper, she explains what made her do it. She said it caused her very great psychological damage. 

One of Fernandez's lawyers, Felipe Trucco, said that his client is still undergoing more surgery after he went through the vicious assault. After the attack happened, the man was rushed to a hospital nearby and it was reported that he had suffered from severe blood loss.

According to officials, Barattini was not staying with Fernandez at his home during the time the incident occurred. 


They believe, instead, that she went to his house early in the morning on the day of the attack and then proceeded to mutilate him. In her interview, however, when asked if she would do it again, she responds in the negative saying that she would ask for help and that she was sorry. Throughout, Barattini, insists that there had been no amputation or mutilation and that she had only injured him. 

It is not clear at the moment whether the paramedics were able to find the man's genitals or even if the doctors could reattach it. The story as to how the ambulance was hailed is also pretty murky.
