Woman accused of attacking penis with fork, box cutter

FRANKLIN, Ind. – A central Indiana woman is accused of holding a man against his will at a house trailer and using a box cutter to cut his penis.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1hQ1dC5) Johnson County sheriff's deputies have arrested 35-year-old Bonita Lynn Vela of Franklin on preliminary charges of battery with a deadly weapon and criminal confinement with a deadly weapon.

Vela told police she thought the 18-year-old had molested her 2-year-old son, saying her suspicions developed after smoking marijuana. Police say the man denied it.

The man said Vela first tried stabbing his penis with a fork Saturday, then switched to the box cutter. The man was treated at Johnson Memorial Hospital.

Vela was being held on a $28,000 bond. Court records did not indicate whether she had hired an attorney.
