Minn. woman accused of causing painful injury

WINONA, Minn. - WINONA, Minn. (AP) — Authorities are considering whether to charge a woman accused of grabbing a man by the genitals and yanking hard enough for him to need stitches. Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams told the Winona Daily News the 54-year-old woman faces possible charges of domestic assault, third-degree assault and interfering with a 911 call.

Officers were called Friday night to a domestic disturbance in Winona. Williams said the man pulled down his underwear for police and showed them a large tear on his genitals.

Williams said the woman denied grabbing the man, telling officers he had cut himself.

The man was taken to a hospital for stitches. The woman bailed herself out of jail on Saturday.

Charges had not been filed by Tuesday.
