The Florida man cut off genitals from a romantic rival, authorities say, and leave him behind – Chicago Tribune

A man from Florida has been accused of attempted murder in Cook County after the authorities said he had cut off the genitals of another man and hit him so badly that he suffered brain damage.

The 26-year-old victim, who was dating the suspect's former girlfriend and was left in a pool of his own blood, survived the attack that took place in Des Plaines, officials said.

Justin Foster, 28, of Tallahassee, was ordered without bail Friday in the March attack.

According to prosecutors, Foster flew from Chicago to Chicago on March 13, hired a car and drove to the 1100 block of Holiday Lane in Des Plaines, apparently to confront his romantic rival. When Foster saw the victim, he walked up to him and started repeatedly hitting him with a car tag until he lost consciousness, the authorities said.

    Clearly no one edits this but maybe you could read it before you post. Hard to fly from Chicago to Chicago, and how do you beat someone with a car “tag,’ by which you probably mean “plate”
