CHICAGO — A man lit another man’s genitals on fire after catching him having sex with his girlfriend Monday afternoon in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, according to police.
“This will be a lesson to you, I lit your (genitals) on fire,” he told the 30-year-old while using a Bic lighter to burn the man while he was unconscious, according to a police report.
The man ran to a laundromat at 44th Street and Ashland Avenue, where police found him applying Vaseline to the burned area in an attempt to soothe the pain, according to the police report. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital and transferred to the burn unit at the University of Chicago Hospital, according to police.
