Woman Gets Prison For Scrotum Attack
Felon, 46, will serve two years for battery on ex-beau
FEBRUARY 9--The Indiana woman convicted of ripping her former boyfriend’s scrotum to shreds was sentenced today to serve two years in prison for the brutal attack.
Christina Lorena Reber, 46, was convicted last year of felony battery in connection with the March 2012 attack inside the 60-year-old victim’s home.
Reber, seen at right, was ordered to spend two years in custody by a Circuit Court judge who declared that her ex-beau suffered "an extraordinarily heinous injury" at her hands.
The man, who initially received stitches at Muncie’s Ball Memorial Hospital, subsequently required reconstructive surgery. He continues to suffer from pain resulting from the attack, which left his scrotum torn.
According to a police report, the victim broke up with Reber several days before the assault. He told cops that he was at home working on his computer when Reber “walked into his house uninvited” and began punching him in the head.
Reber then latched onto the man’s scrotum and began “squeezing as hard as she could.” The victim recalled that he was "in incredible pain when Reber grabbed his scrotum and began digging in her fingers.” Reber refused to relax her grip as the pair scuffled. Finally, the man recalled, he was able to “pry his scrotum from Reber’s hand” when they fell to the ground.
The victim, who was interviewed by police while being treated at Ball Memorial, had blood on his shirt and “a long wide tear on his scrotum,” which had been “completely torn loose from his body,” cops noted.
When investigators checked in with the man two days after the attack, he reported that his bleeding scrotum was “so swollen he is unable to walk and is missing work.” (2 pages)
