A 40 years old man was arrested for locking up his girlfriend’s pants using a chastity belt for years just so that she won’t cheat on him. According to CNN, the man’s abused, unidentified 25-year-old Mexican girlfriend recently had to tell cops about the abuse after she was left unable to go to the bathroom for several hours because she couldn’t unlatch the padlock on her jeans.
The agonizing pain prompted the woman who lives in Zacatlame, a poverty-stricken community in the Mexican Gulf state of Veracruz — to go to the police.
She said she was too afraid of her 40-year-old boyfriend to grab a pair of scissors and cut the belt loop to which the lock was attached.
The man got arrested and he admitted to locking his girlfriend’s pants and gave cops the key.
Police were ready to make sure he paid for abusing his girlfriend but were shocked when the woman refused to press charges once her abusive boyfriend was detained.
Unable to do anything, the police had to let the suspect free after a few hours.
The following day however, the suspect was made to sign a statement promising never again to use a padlock on his girlfriend or abuse her in any other way.
