A Philadelphia man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed and castrated a paraplegic man during an argument.

Edgar Bonilla, 41, was charged with attempted murder after the Monday night mutilation, which left the unnamed 43-year-old victim in critical condition, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Police say Bonilla and the victim were having an argument at about 7 p.m. over a woman, who is also paraplegic. Bonilla was reportedly visiting the pair, who live in a home for the disabled. The suspect stabbed the victim several times in the neck and abdomen, then mutilated his groin, according to WPVI.

The victim was in a coma and remained in critical condition Tuesday.

Bonilla was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and robbery for stealing the victim's medication. He's being held on $5 million bail. His next court date is set for July 2.

Bonilla also has a history of trespassing and robbery. In 2004 he pleaded guilty to defiant trespassing, and he received a 12-month probation sentence, Metro reports.
