Man Hospitalized After Castrating Himself

-->
CEDAR RAPIDS A 71-year-old man was taken to a hospital after police say he intentionally castrated himself Monday morning.

Emergency crews responded around 11:10 a.m. when the man reported the incident himself. The man told a police dispatcher he castrated himself for religious reasons using a razor blade.

A few minutes after arriving at the gated community residence, a police officer confirmed the report.

Sgt. Cristy Hamblin said the man was transported to St. Luke's Hospital. His name was not released.
