A Pennsylvania woman is behind bars after allegedly attempting to cut off her husband's penis with a box cutter.

Lisa Jones-Orock, 39, of Ellwood City, was arrested Friday following a call about a domestic argument inside an apartment, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The suspect initially told police that her husband, Gerald Lee Orock Jr., attacked her with a knife. He was taken to the New Castle Police Department for questioning.

While there, Orock told police that his wife had tried to cut off his penis with a box cutter, KDKA-TV reports.

Upon further investigation, police found a blue box cutter and blood on the floor. They also noticed his pants were cut in the crotch area and he had cuts to his arms and hands that were defensive in nature.

By the time police questioned Orock about his injuries, his wife had been taken into custody on a bench warrant for DUI. A bag of marijuana was found in her possession, police claim.

The suspect had blood on her face and a cut on her right hand, according to the police report.

Jones-Orock was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment and possession of a small amount of marijuana, according to the Ellwood City Ledger.

A judge set bond at $5,000.

Orock was lodged in the Lawrence County jail after police learned that Orock-Jones had a protection from abuse order against him that prohibited any contact with her, NCNewsOnline.com reports.

In December, 2011, Orock was charged with simple assault and harassment stemming from an incident where he allegedly punched his wife, according to the Ellwood City Ledger.
