Vigilantes in Brazil hacked off a man’s penis after suspecting him of raping a 3-year-old girl, it’s reported.
Francisco de Souza de Castro, 66, also had three of his fingers chopped off in the brutal revenge attack in Severinia, Sao Paulo state, at the weekend.
He was rushed to Santa Casa de Misericordia Hospital, in nearby Barretos, where doctors unsuccessfully tried to re-attach his sex organ.
Medics also failed to re-graft his digits onto his hand.
Estadao reports that Castro allegedly raped the infant, on the rural ranch where he worked, last Sunday.
Her mother reportedly spotted signs of the alleged attack when her daughter returned home later that night.
It’s unclear who carried out the attack on Castro, but local media speculates it could have been angry relatives of the child.
