LAKE, Fla. — Law enforcement officials say a Florida man held his wife's lover at gunpoint, chopped off the man's penis and fled with it.

The Associated Press reports 49-year-old Alex Bonilla was arrested hours later on charges including aggravated assault.

The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office reports that Bonilla broke into a neighbor's home on Sunday, tying him up and mutilating his genitals with scissors. Deputies told the Associated Press the victim told authorities that Bonilla then snatched the severed penis and fled across the street to his own home.

An arrest report says Bonilla caught his wife and the victim having sex in May.

The victim was hospitalized after the mutilation, the Associated Press reports.
