BarcelonaA bar worker was arrested last night accused of a crime of injuries after handing herself in at a local police station in Sant Andreu de la Barca (Baix Llobregat). She explained that she had cut off her boss's penis: when he tried to sexually assault her, she defended herself with a knife. The man, who owns the bar where the woman worked, was taken to hospital, where he is still receiving medical attention. The police have arrested the woman, who is now in police custody.

The facts, advanced by Cadena SER and confirmed by police sources to ARA, happened yesterday around midnight. After the woman handed herself in, the police went to the bar where the man was. The police plan to arrest him once he leaves hospital under sexual assault charges.
