ANCHORAGE – Anchorage (search) police said a woman upset about an impending break-up with her boyfriend cut off the man's penis and flushed it down a toilet.
Utility workers recovered the severed member Sunday morning and surgeons reattached it.
Thirty-five-year-old Kim Tran was charged with first-degree assault, domestic violence and tampering with evidence.
She was jailed at the Anchorage Jail (search).
At the Sunday arraignment, Tran requested a Vietnamese interpreter and Magistrate Brian Johnson continued the arraignment until Monday with no bail set.
Anchorage Police Department (search) spokeswoman Anita Shell said Tran dropped off the 44-year-old victim at Providence Hospital shortly after midnight.
Shell said investigators determined that the two had argued over a pending break-up.
At some point, the pair decided to have sexual relations and the man agreed to have his arms tied to a window handle above their bed.
Shell said the woman pulled out a kitchen knife, severed the man's penis and flushed it down the toilet.
Officers arrived at the couple's home and found the woman cleaning up the bloody scene.
Utility workers recovered the man's severed member and surgeons were successful in reattaching it.
