A Greek woman set fire to a British man's genitals at a club after he allegedly made sexual advances on her.
The unidentified woman is being praised by her hometown in Crete for what she did and for also turning herself in to police immediately after the alleged incident. She has been charged with causing bodily injury and endangering private property, according to the Telegraph .
Police said that the incident took place at a club in the Greek resort town of Malia. The British man, who police have also not yet identified, allegedly took off his pants there and waved his genitals at a number of girls. He is then said to have "forcefully fondled" the Greek woman and asked her to hold his genitals.
The woman asked the man to stop harassing her, police said, and when he didn't, she poured Sabucco, a liquor that resembles Greek ouzo, on his private area.
When the man continued his advances, police said that's when the woman set fire to his genitals using a lighter.
The man is currently at in a Heraklion, Crete, clinic being treated for second-degree burns to his testicles and penis.
The judge and prosecutor in the case have agreed to set the woman free pending trial, which is an indication that they agreed with her argument of self-defense.
In July a New York man claimed his wife burned his genitals when she poured hot water on him while he was sleeping . He told the New York Post that she was upset over his infidelity.
