Woman Ripped Man’s Testicle out with her Teeth
Dec 7, 2017 – A woman has been ordered to pay compensation to her former boyfriend after ripping a testicle out of his scrotum with her teeth.
Nunzia Del Viscio, 43, carried out the attack in her victim’s flat in Edinburgh in May last year.
She claimed she had been acting in self defence, but was convicted of assault.
Del Viscio has been placed on a restriction of liberty order for six months, which means she must stay at home between 22:00 and 06:00.
Appearing for sentence at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, she was also ordered to pay her victim £500 compensation.
Sheriff Peter McCormack heard that those involved in the incident were Italian nationals, all working in restaurants in Edinburgh.
Del Viscio, Mr Palma and two other people met in a nightclub after work. They had been drinking, and Del Viscio admitted to having taken drugs.
When the nightclub closed, all four went to Mr Palma’s flat in a taxi.
Mr Palma told the court that in the early hours of the morning, Del Viscio had begun “destroying” one of the bedrooms.
He said he told her to calm down and leave, but during the argument she bit his left testicle.
He said he tried to stop the flow of blood with a towel and called for an ambulance.
He was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where his testicle was put back into the scrotum and he was given 15 stitches.
Police found Del Viscio outside the flat with blood on her teeth and face.
