ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A North Carolina woman was arrested after authorities say she bit her boyfriend's genitals, causing "permanent damage."

Martinne Patricia Delavega, 51, of Jacksonville, was charged with malicious castration, according to WITN.

Authorities say the victim was Delavega's boyfriend who had to get stitches following the incident.

Deputies tell WITN that Delavega was also injured during the alleged assault while the victim was trying to stop her.

Investigators say the attack happened as a result of domestic dispute between the two.

Delavega was released last week on a $10,000 bond.
