A scorned Swedish woman who got back at her ex-husband by hijacking his Facebook account to indicate he was gay and then later attacked him by grabbing his testicles and biting him has been convicted for the assault by a court in southern Sweden.

The couple's 3-year marriage ended in the spring of 2011 after three years, prompting the woman to start a campaign of revenge against her ex-husband, who had quickly moved on to another woman, the local Skövde Nyheter daily reported.

In June, the man suspected his Facebook account had been hijacked after he discovered several contacts had been erased and his sexual preference had been changes to "interested in men".

Support personnel informed him that the information had been changed by someone with his login details, leading him to confront his ex-wife, who admitted to the intrusion.

She told her ex she was reading his messages in an attempt to find out if he was seeing someone new, but nothing more.

However, the attacks didn't stop there.

When the man stood outside his new home with his new girlfriend later that summer, the upset ex-wife dropped by.

She walked up to her ex-husband and asked what they were doing, at the same time grabbing a firm hold of his testicles.

The man then wrestled her to the ground and called the police.

But the outraged woman didn't give up her quest for revenge, proceeding to bite the inside of his thigh as he was trying to hold her down to the ground, the paper reported.

After being bit two more times, another man who had seen the woman lurking around the area came to the rescue of the ex-husband, who later told police the incident was the third physical attack carried out against him by his ex-wife since their divorce.

The ex-husband has since left the city, and on Thursday the woman was sentenced by the Skaraborg District Court to probation and fines.
