Newcastle man shops ex-lover who bit off his testicle
ONCE bitten, twice shy? Not a bit of it. Martin Douglas got back with Maria Topp, 45, the woman who bit into his scrotum. He had 19 stitches to re-attach his scrotum. In November 2011, Topp scored a 12-month sentence, suspended for 18 months, and a restraining order that banned her from contacting Douglas.
Then they got back together, although she says it was not sexual. But when the friendship withered and died in June, Doulgas called the police and said Topp has breached her restraining order.
Topp was arrested. She says was “stabbed in the back”, but not literally.
At Newcastle Magistrate’s Court, Topp pleaded guilty to breaching a restraining order. Topp, of Washington, Tyne and Wear, was fined £150 and ordered to pay £15 a week surcharge from her £40.50 a week Jobseeker’s Allowance.
“I can’t remember biting off his testicles. We had been drinking and he had bought me some earrings for Valentine’s Day when we went back to his flat, then we started to fight.”
Adding of her latest adventure:
“I was arrested and charged with harassment and breaching my order. I never thought he would do something like this. It is a stab in the back. People think I am some sort of savage because of the testicle thing but I’m not that sort of person.”
Indeed not. Although if Ms Topp does develop a flavour for that sot of thing, a few rabbis in Germany could do with a hand…
