An inmate at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility used a razor to cut off his own penis Saturday, sources told ABC7’s Kevin Lewis.
Jail staff made the discovery — which, according to Lewis, left them horrified — around 3 p.m. during a shift change. Paramedics then took the man to a Northern Virginia hospital that specializes in “traumatic limb reattachment.”
His status since being taken to the hospital is unclear.
The man, who is believed to have mental health issues, was booked into the jail in February for second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
Mental health issues?
