Johnson County sheriff’s deputies said Bonita Lynn Vela, 35, thought the unnamed 18-year-old, a boyfriend of one of her daughters, had molested her 2-year-old son. The victim denied he had done so.
Huffington Post reported that Vela told police she’d become suspicious after smoking marijuana, and she had a friend bring her daughter’s boyfriend to her trailer around 3 a.m. Saturday, and demanded to know if he’d molested her son or slept with her daughter.
The victim described Vela as “extremely mad,” according to the station.
According to the Daily Mail, Vela and two other people, who were not arrested, allegedly held the man in the woman’s trailer near Franklin, Ind., for more than three hours. She threatened him, saying she would ask friends to ‘take him out’ with guns by tying him to a tree, shooting him in the head and leaving his body to be eaten by animals, the victim told police.
The woman allegedly also told the victim that she “wanted to scar him so that he would have to look at it every time that he had sex in the future,” and then gave him an ultimatum – allow her to cut his penis or be killed.
He chose his life, and Vela allegedly “cut him deep” with a box cutter, then let him go. The man was treated at a local hospital, and the extent of his injuries has not been released.
He told police he remains afraid that Vela or her friends will hurt or kill him.
Vela now faces preliminary charges of battery with a deadly weapon and criminal confinement with a deadly weapon, according to Huffington Post.
