Franklin, Indiana resident Bonita Lynn Vela, was booked into the Johnson (no pun intended) County Jail Monday after stabbing a man’s penis with a fork and cutting it with a box cutter. Vela, 35, has been charged with battery with a deadly weapon and criminal confinement with a deadly weapon.
Vela told police she believed her daughter’s boyfriend, an 18 year-old Avon, Indiana resident, was molesting her 2-year old son. The man said he had not done anything like that. Vela admitted her suspicions grew after she smoked marijuana, but could not recall whether she had taken any other drug before cutting the young man’s penis.
The victim told police that Vela was out of control and held him, with the assistance of several friends and neighbors, in her south-side trailer for 3 and a half hours before offering him a choice: his penis, or his life. She told him that she had friends with guns who would “take him out” if he didn’t comply, saying he would be tied to a tree, shot in the head and left for animals to eat.
After making the victim drop his pants, she told him she would allow him to leave with his life if he agreed to allow her to cut his penis. The police report said that Vela said to her victim she “wanted to scar him so that he would have to look at it every time that he had sex in the future.”
Vela initially stabbed the victim repeatedly with a fork in an attempt to draw blood, but when she did not get the desired results, she got a box cutter. Police who were allowed to view the injury say the man was cut deep. Police are still investigating to see if the allegations of child abuse are factual.
