Hands down, this is the craziest story of 2012!
A Chinese man is recovering in the hospital today after men broke into his home and stole his penis.
Yes, you read that right.
The victim, Fei Lin, 41, a rural migrant worker in the eastern Chinese village of Nigiao, said that a group of masked men forced themselves into his home, placed a bag over his head and left.
According to the Daily Star, Lin told cops he had been asleep when the men burst into his bedroom around 4 am, saying:
"They put something over my head and pulled down my trousers and then they ran off. I was so shocked I didn't feel a thing - then I saw I was bleeding and my penis was gone."
Although emergency workers searched for the severed organ, they failed to locate it and believe it was taken away by the attackers. Police believe Lin was targeted and the attackers cut off his penis because he was having an affair with another woman. Lin denies the affair.
Wow, are there really penis thieves in the world?
