South African police say mutilation video, child pornography found in Danish suspect's home
JOHANNESBURG – South African police say they found a video of female genital mutilation and child pornography in the home of the Danish man caught storing female genitalia in his freezer.
Warrant Officer Lynda Steyn said Tuesday that police found a cellphone video of a woman being mutilated. She said the woman in the video could not be identified, but seemed to be conscious.
Steyn said the man is charged with assault, intimidation and breaking medical laws. He is in custody until his next court appearance.
The man was arrested last Thursday in Bloemfontein in the Free State province. He was found storing 21 pieces of genitalia in his freezer, along with anesthetic and surgical implements.
The Associated Press has not named the man because he has not yet entered a plea.
