Edinburgh, Scotland – A woman who ripped a man’s testicle out with her teeth after he refused to participate in a “threesome” was ordered by a Scottish court to pay the victim less than $700 in restitution.
Police said they found Nunzia Del Viscio, 43, with blood on her face and teeth when they responded to a report of the attack in May, 2016, BBC News reported.
Del Viscio and Marcello Palma, 44, met their friends, Massimo Torrice and Luisa Bragaglia, at a nightclub after work, the Scottish Sun reported.
The group spent the evening drinking together, then moved the party to Palma’s house when the nightclub closed.
Palma said that Del Viscio used cocaine and a mixture of unknown drugs earlier in the night, STV reported.
According to Palma, he and Del Viscio had a sexual relationship in the past, but Del Viscio and Torrice went into a bedroom together when the group arrived at Palma’s house, the Scottish Sun reported.
Palma said that he and Bragaglia spent the rest of the night together in another room.
According to Palma, at about 4 a.m., a naked Del Viscio barged into his room, jumped on his bed, and demanded a threesome.
When he refused, Palma said Del Viscio began “destroying” the bedroom, so he ordered her to leave.
“We were insulting each other and she came against me and bit my left testicle,” Palma told the court. “I threw two or three punches and had a finger in her eye to push her away. She drew her head back and my testicle came out.”
He attempted to stop the flow of blood with a towel, called for an ambulance, and was rushed to a local hospital.
When police arrived, they found Del Viscio outside the home with blood on her face and teeth. Her face was bruised, and she told police that Palma had assaulted her.
Investigators found pools of blood inside the home, and noted that one of the bedrooms was in disarray.
During her trial, Del Viscio said the altercation took place because Palma wouldn’t let her leave his home.
Del Viscio claimed Palma pushed her onto the floor and punched her, and that she acted in self-defense.
“As he came to me I bit him,” Del Viscio told the court. “I just remember a noise and blood pouring into my mouth.”
Doctors were able to put Palma’s testicle back into his scrotum, and gave him 15 stitches.
Palmer later admitted that he struck Del Viscio, but said he did so for good reason.
“I was trying to stop her biting my testicle,” he told the court.
Del Viscio’s attorney blamed the assault on Del Viscio’s drug and alcohol use.
The Edinburgh Sheriff Court convicted Del Viscio of assault, and ordered her to pay £500, which equals approximately $673.80, KUTV reported.
She was also placed on house arrest between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. for a period of six months.
Edinburgh Sheriff Peter McCormack said that all four of the individuals are Italian nationals, who were working as restaurant employees in Edinburgh.
