Furious father in China bites off six-year-old son’s penis before spitting it out
Passersby reacted shocked when a ‘mentally ill’ father bit off the penis of his six-year-old son and spat it out.
Witnesses inside Shenzhen, in China’s Guangdong province, said the 32-year-old father was walking down the street with his naked son and four-year-old daughter when he ordered the boy to lick his penis.
When the boy refused, he attacked him using his teeth to remove his son’s genitals.

A shocking image in the City Post newspaper shows the young person lying on a hospital bed connected to the area.
Newspaper editors blacked out the boy’s face to protect his identity.
The newspaper reports that doctors have managed to reattach the boy’s genitals, but it is still too early to say whether he will use the appendage normally.
Police said the father likely has a mental illness as he was recently seen pretending to strangle his son on their balcony, witnesses said.
Investigations also revealed that the man, identified only by the surname Yu, was heavily in debt after a failed business venture and was often seen as gambling.
Relatives will now take care of the six-year-old boy and his sister.
