A man made his first appearance in court after being charged with supergluing a woman’s genitals together.
Paul Watson of Blackpool, Lanchasire, appeared at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court on Friday. He has been accused of using high-strength glue on a female’s genitals.
The 44-year-old man has been charged with maliciously wounding an unnamed woman with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Prosecutor Pam Smith asked for the case to be heard at crown court due to the seriousness of the allegation. Magistrates agreed; Watson will appear at Preston Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing on Nov. 26.
Mirror reports that Watson has yet to enter a plea and no further details on the case have been released.
If convicted of the offense, Watson could face a prison sentence.
After the hearing, he was taken back into custody.
