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.

Story continues below…

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.

Biting balls is pretty uncool. No self-respecting court should be bothering with the other stuff.

I can see why he left her for the other one.

" ...the woman was sentenced by the Skaraborg District Court to probation and fines."

Had the genders been reversed the man would undoubtedly have been in jail for years. As it is, the woman gets a "gender discount" so very typical of the socialist feminazi justice system.

'The couple's 3-year marriage ended in the spring of 2011 after three years' - that's unusual!

@Hogwash - well...its always best to clarify these things.

There must surely be a mistake here. A guy assulted by a woman? Women are always the victims while men as a group are all animals. Just ask Marianne Ny, Claes Borgström and Ireen von Wachenfeldt. They will no doubt give their own interpretation of this, I expect the guy somehow deserved what happened to him. And probably needs to be man-taxed on top of it.

I have a had a ton of these experiences in Sweden. One girl friend tried to cut my weener when she saw me with another woman. Just a stroke of luck that she cut my hand.
