A Tokyo law student has been jailed for four and half years after he chopped off the penis of a lawyer love rival using a pair of garden shears.
Ikki Kotsugai (pictured above), 25, from Minato, Tokyo, carried out the vicious attack on the unnamed lawyer back in August 2015.
According to the Tokyo Reporter, Kotsugai’s wife had told him that she was being forced to have sex with her boss, when in fact the affair was consensual.
Visibly upset by this revelation, the former boxer — who was studying at Keio University Law School — confronted the lawyer at his office last summer.
Having exchanged a few pleasantries, things appear to have escalated, and the aspiring lawyer proceeded to punch his wife’s boss several times, causing him to fall to the floor.
Shockingly, things then took a gruesome turn as Kotsugai unzipped the lawyer’s trousers and using a pair garden shears began cutting away at the base of his semi-conscious love rival’s penis. All the while, his wife watched on.
According to popular local news site Japan Crush, having severed the 42 year-old victim’s appendage, the law student then disposed of it down one of the office’s communal toilets.
Sentencing Kotsugai to four and a half years in jail, judge Kazunori Karei branded the attack as “extremely dangerous and vicious”. Astonishingly, despite reports stating the lawyer has now “lost his reproductive function”, he has since apologised Kotsugai for the affair.
