Man out of coma after his penis was cut off by gang

A 40-year-old man identified as Kelvin 'Kelly' Hewitt had his penis chopped off by a gipsy gang in the early hours of Thursday morning in Middlesbrough, UK.

He was rushed to hospital and put into an induced coma, but is now conscious and in a stable condition, police confirmed.

Police brought a busy dual carriageway to a standstill to hunt for Mr Hewitt's penis after he was discovered severely injured at the side of an A-road.

Mr Hewitt is thought to be a father-of-five and on social networking sites Leanne Trewhitt, appeared to identify herself as one of his children.

She wrote on Facebook: 'Think I've felt every emotion there possibly is today, thanks for all your kind messages my phone hasn't stopped. My dad's stable now just hoping for a speedy recovery.'

Her friends flooded her page with get-well messages after she posted the above note.

Mr Hewitt indicated he had a previous relationship with a lady named on social networking sites as Carla Hill. However, it is unclear if she is the mother of his children or if they are still a couple.

Cleveland police said: 'The victim remains in hospital and is now conscious. Officers visited him today but were unable to carry out a detailed interview. They hope to speak to him today or tomorrow to establish exactly how his injuries were sustained. Inquiries are on-going.'

Mr Hewitt was discovered in a distressed state on the side of the A66 dual carriageway.

Dr Raj Persad, a consultant urologist, told MailOnline that a new penis could be constructed even if the original tissue is lost.

He said: 'The best hope is that doctors have kept the tissue in a viable way so the penis can be reconnected. If the tissue is no longer viable, the options are limited.

'It may be possible to make a phallus – rather like that created in gender reassignment surgery. Here, tissue expanders can be used to create a flap of tissue that can be rolled into a phallus. The urethra would also have to be reconstructed.'

A member of staff at Asda close to where the incident happened said he heard that a man had suffered the horrendous injury to his groin.

He added: 'A few of the Asda staff have been talking and apparently it was some gipsy men doing it to another guy after they found out he had slept with one of their girlfriends.

'I don't know his name but that seems to be what I have heard.'

Although police at the time would only say that the man had suffered serious injuries and wounds to his groin area, around eight officers were seen combing a grass verge at the side of the road, while tape was used to seal off a section of the carriageway.

It's believed that they were searching for the missing body part.

The road closed some time between 4.20am and 9am and was open again by midday. The police closed east bound carriageway first while they searched, then west bound.

A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of assault in relation to the incident was held in police custody on Thursday. He was bailed pending further enquiries.

Mr Hewitt was found at 4.50am and was taken to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

'The road closures were required as part of the investigation into how the man received his injuries,' said a police spokesman.

'This is necessary so that officers can look for anything which may shed light on how he became injured or his direction of travel.'

The police had taped off a Vauxhall Zafira on a nearby gipsy site.

He added: 'If the road was not closed any evidence could be lost or destroyed.'

'Investigations are at a very early stage.'

The spokesman added: 'Officers are keeping an open mind as to how he received his injuries and key to this will be speaking to the man himself when they are able to do so.'

Two community support officers who were patrolling said a man had been seriously injured earlier today.

They said 'no comment' when asked if a man's penis had been chopped off.

All road closures have now been lifted.
