FRANKLIN, Ind. – Police have arrested and charged an Indiana woman who is accused of cutting a man’s genitals with a box knife because she believes the man molested her 2-year-old son.

Indiana’s Fox 59 reported that police were called to a trailer where the 18-year-old man in question said his girlfriend’s mother, Bonita Lynn Vela, held him captive until she cut his penis.

The man said Vela and two others held him captive for more than three hours.

He said Vela told him that “she wanted to scar him so that he would have to look at it every time that he had sex in the future,” Fox 59 reported.

Police said Vela told them she went to a friend’s house where she smoked marijuana but she wasn’t sure if that was the only drug she had taken. Vela told officers she confronted the man at about 3 a.m. Saturday.

Fox 59 reported the man told officers he never touched the boy but Vela would not listen.

According to the police report, the man said Vela was “going to take him out, shoot him in the head and tie him to a tree so the animals (would) eat him.”

He said she then told him to drop his pants so she could “cut his (expletive).”

If he didn’t comply, “she was going to have people hold him down and she would cut (his penis) all the way off,” the report stated.

According to officials, Vela said she was holding the box cutter but the man knocked it out of her hand and that is how his penis was cut.

Vela told investigators she never intended to hurt him, she just wanted to scare him.

She now faces assault charges.

Police said the investigation into the molestation claims is ongoing.
