JAPANESE POLICE HAVE arrested a man accused of bursting into a lawyer’s office and cutting off his penis with garden shears, before flushing the organ down a toilet.

Local media reports said Ikki Kodukai, a 24-year-old Tokyo graduate student and boxer, may have been acting out of revenge over his wife’s romantic involvement with the 42-year-old victim.

Police said Kodukai, who was arrested shortly after the alleged attack this morning, punched the unnamed lawyer several times.

He then reportedly pried off his trousers and severed his “lower body part” with the shears.

A Tokyo police spokesman confirmed the body part in question was the man’s genitals.

Kodukai told police that he “flushed what was severed down the toilet”, he said, adding that the victim’s injuries were not life threatening.

According to the ANN news network, as reported by News on Japan, the alleged attack took place in the presence of Kodukai’s wife, who works in the same office as the victim.
