CHICAGO (AP) _ A man has been charged with trying to rape a woman who castrated him during the alleged attack, police said.

Erik Williams, 21, allegedly tried to force a 42-year-old woman to perform a sex act on him early Friday, and while the two struggled the woman bit off his testicles, police said.

The woman went to police headquarters and turned the testicles over to officers, authorities said.

Williams later arrived at Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center with injuries matching the woman’s description, police said. Doctors were unable to reattach his testicles, hospital spokeswoman Sandra Wilks said.

Williams remained in the hospital Saturday in police custody and was listed in stable condition.
