MUSLIM man in Manhattan performs female genital mutilation on his young wife after anally raping her
A Manhattan Muslim man from Africa was charged with circumcising the clitoris of his much-younger wife after she refused to have sex, authorities said.
NY Post (h/t next instinct) Moussa Diarra, 48, wanted to have anal intercourse with the 24-year-old victim and when she said no, he forced himself on her, police said. He sodomized her before performing the horrific circumcision around 9 p.m. Sept. 14, the woman told cops.
The victim reported the assault about a week later, police said. Diarra, who is originally from Africa, where female genital mutilation is still widespread, was arrested Sept. 23, court records show. He was indicted by a grand jury six days later.
He is charged with a forcible sex act, aggravated sex abuse by compulsion, attempted assault with intent to disfigure or dismember and assault with intent to cause physical injury with a weapon, court records show.
He is being held at the Manhattan Detention Center in lieu of $20,000 cash bail or $40,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 27.
