Spurned woman bit out boyfriend’s tes­ti­cle

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

A WOMAN ripped out her ex-boyfriend’s tes­ti­cle with her teeth af­ter he re­fused her de­mand for a three­some, a court has heard.

Nun­zia Del Vis­cio, 43, claimed she had been act­ing in self-de­fence, but was found guilty of as­sault­ing Marcello Palma, 44, at his home in Ed­in­burgh.

At Ed­in­burgh Sher­iff Court, Sher­iff Peter Mccor­mack heard that Del Vis­cio, Palma and two friends, all Ital­ian na­tion­als who worked at restau­rants in the city, had re­turned from a night­club to Palma’s flat.

At about 4am, Palma told the court, Del Vis­cio came into his bed­room naked, jumped on the bed and said she wanted a “three­some”. When he said “No”, an ar­gu­ment en­sued and he or­dered her out of his flat.

“We were in­sult­ing each other and she came against me and bit my left tes­ti­cle,” he said.

“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 said he tried to staunch the flow of blood with a towel and called for an am­bu­lance. He was taken to the Royal In­fir­mary where his tes­ti­cle was put back into his scro­tum and he re­quired 15 stitches.

Philip Tem­ple­ton, the de­fence so­lic­i­tor, said pho­to­graphs showed injuries to his client’s eyes and face and asked Palma if he had caused them. “Yes” said Palma, “I was try­ing to stop her bit­ing my tes­ti­cle”.

Del Vis­cio, of Murchie Cres­cent, Ed­in­burgh, was handed a Re­stric­tion of Lib­erty Or­der to stay in her home be­tween 10pm and 6am for six months and told to pay £500 com­pen­sa­tion.
