A Florida man, and it is always a Florida man, was taken into custody over the weekend after he allegedly cut off his neighbor’s penis in revenge for sleeping with his wife.
Alex Bonilla was arrested by Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office authorities following the incident where he allegedly forced himself into his neighbor’s home, tied the neighbor up, and cut off the neighbor’s penis with a pair of scissors. All of this occurred while the other man’s children were home.
Bonilla, 49, is now facing multiple felony charges as he continues to be held on a $1.25 million bond, according to inmate records from the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies report that they responded to a call of a “stabbing/cutting” at a mobile home and later learned that an armed man, whom they eventually identified as Bonilla had broken into the male caller’s residence and cut off his penis.
Once officers arrived at the home, the male victim said that Bonilla came over, had a handgun in his possession, and threatened to kill him if he resisted, according to reports.
The victim was forced into his bedroom, where Bonilla allegedly used a pair of scissors to mutilate the man because he believed his neighbor had slept with his wife.
While tall of this was occurring, the victim’s two children were inside the residence. Bonilla then allegedly fled the scene with the severed appendage.
An arrest report indicated that Bonilla “was found to have caught the victim and [Bonilla’s] wife during sexual intercourse” earlier in May, 2019.
A few hours after the incident, deputies located and arrested Bonilla. Bonilla now faces multiple charges, including burglary, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, false imprisonment, and use of a firearm.
The victim was transported to a local hospital where he is currently recovering from his injuries and in stable condition.
An attorney for Bonilla could not immediately be identified.
