A jealous woman who sliced open her partner’s scrotum after catching him semi-naked on the phone to his lover has avoided jail.
Furious Rachael Biscoe grabbed fiancé Trevor Camp between the legs and cut open his genitals with her diamond engagement ring , causing heavy bleeding.
The 44-year-old flew into a rage after returning home to find Mr Camp in bed and speaking to a Chinese woman he was romantically involved with.
Biscoe accused Mr Camp of cheating on her and the pair grappled over the phone.
Mr Camp was naked from the waist down and during the scuffle felt pain to his groin area and noticed he was bleeding.
Mr Camp’s female friend, who remained on the phone throughout, later told police he had shouted out to her ‘she’s got a knife and she sliced me.’
However no weapon was ever found at their flat in Poundbury – Prince Charles’ trendy designer village on the edge of Dorchester, Dorset.
Mr Camp admitted being drunk at time and said he did not know what caused the eye-watering injury.
Biscoe left him writhing in agony while she went out to walk the couple’s dog.
The victim called for an ambulance at 2.20pm on December 8 and was taken to hospital.
He needed surgery to the wound but later had to be readmitted to hospital after getting an infection to the area.
Elizabeth Valera, prosecuting, told magistrates the couple had been in a relationship for six years but things went downhill when Biscoe found out he had an affair.
In a statement Mr Camp said: "She found it hard to trust me and was suspicious of my movements.
"Although we’ve had a volatile relationship, I really did not expect her to be so vicious."
He added that at the time he was exposed as he had no pants on but did not know how he came to be wounded.
Ms Valera told magistrates the injuries had been caused by Biscoe’s diamond engagement ring when she grabbed him.
The pair are now no longer together and Mr Camp, who is also a transvestite, has since moved to China to live with the woman on the phone.
Aileen Tring, defending, said shortly after they started their relationship Mr Camp revealed to Biscoe that he was also a cross-dresser, which she accepted.
But he had failed to tell her he also had a drink problem.
Miss Tring said: "She felt she wasn’t able to leave and when he was sober he was a good person."
Biscoe, who now lives in Ilminster, pleaded guilty to a charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm.
She was handed a four month prison sentence suspended for 12 months by magistrates in Weymouth.
She was also given a a concurrent two month suspended sentence for breaching a conditional discharge from a previous assault conviction.
Biscoe, who wept throughout the hearing, was also ordered to undertake 20 rehabilitation activity requirements, 160 hours of unpaid work and pay £300 compensation to the victim.
