Strip Club Visits Trigger Near Castration
Cops: Woman pulled knife on husband during intimacy
FEBRUARY 2--Angered by her husband’s visits to “titty bars,” a Wisconsin woman held a knife to the man’s genitals in an apparent threat to castrate him, according to police.
Maria Casarez, 39, is facing a disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon rap in connection with the January 14 incident, according to a Circuit Court criminal complaint. Casarez is seen at right in a Jackson County Sheriff’s Office mug shot.
Investigators report that Casarez and her husband Benjamin had returned to their home after an evening of drinking at Greythunder’s Bar when “they started getting intimate.” As she was “going down” on her completely disrobed spouse, Casarez somehow retrieved a pocket knife.
With the weapon in her right hand and Benjamin’s testicles in her left hand, Casarez allegedly “brought the knife to the testicles and made contact with the point of the knife.” Startled, Benjamin sat up, knocked the knife out of his wife’s hand, and said, “How dare you!” He later called police.
When questioned by deputies, Casarez “complained of marital problems,” noting that she was upset by Benjamin’s “recent visits to ‘Titty Bars.’” Investigators helpfully described those bars as “establishments which feature nude female dancing.” Casarez said that she “decided to scare him by placing a knife to his genitals.”
A sheriff’s deputy recovered the knife from the couple’s bedroom, where Casarez submitted to a Breathalyzer test that showed her blood alcohol content to be .125. Casarez, free on bond, is scheduled for a February 21 court status conference. (2 pages)
