Man sentenced for mutilating toddler

A man has been sentenced to 10 years behind bars after he was found guilty on a charge of attempted murder for the mutilation of a two year old boy in 2017.

The man who may not be named in order to protect the identity of the victim was arrested in December 2017 after he used a pair of scissors to cut off the boy's genital.

The boy was taken to a hospital in George, but had to be transported to the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town for reconstructive surgery.

During the trail, the man said that he had no explanation for the barbaric act. He also admitted to taking drugs before the incident. The man, believed to be the boyfriend of the victim's mother at the time, initially fled the scene, but was arrested shortly after the crime was committed.
