PALM SPRINGS (CBS 8) - A Palm Springs woman is behind bars Sunday after attempting to cut off her husband's genitalia, according to police.

Saturday around 5:45 p.m. police were called out to a house located in the 1700 block of Rochelle Road, in Palm Springs, according to Sgt. Melissa Desmarais, of the Palm Springs Police Department.

"Officers made contact with a 62-year-old male victim who reported that his wife had attempted to sever his penis with scissors, resulting in injuries to the area," added Desmarais.

The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening wound and has since been released.

Virginia Valdez, 67, was taken to Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning, where she was booked for mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and spousal abuse.

She is currently being held on $100,000 bond, according to Desmarais.
