MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A woman accused of disfiguring a man's penis with injectables to make it bigger was arrested Monday in Miami-Dade County.
Nery Carvajal-Gonzalez, 48, faces one count of unlicensed practice of health care causing serious injury and two counts of practicing medicine without a license.
Gonzalez appeared Tuesday morning in bond court where she was granted a $100,000 bond. She will be placed on house arrest if she bonds out.
Authorities said she was arrested after returning to Miami from Colombia Monday night, where she allegedly fled to after the procedure.
"The state was going to show photos to the court, but that would only embarrass the victim and disgust the court," prosecutor Warren Eth said. "The court would not be able to unsee the images."
According to court documents, the victim met Gonzalez after she came into the hair salon where he worked and offered injectable services.
Investigators said the 55-year-old victim received facials from Gonzalez and eventually entrusted her to inject fillers into his penis at a Hialeah warehouse to make it longer and thicker. The victim said the procedure severely disfigured his penis, and said future attempts to contact Gonzalez were unsuccessful.
"Reads like a horror script. It's almost unbelievable that a human being can voluntary do this to another human being. Not once, not twice. This was not an isolated incident. She solicits business and butchers people," Eth said.
Mark Schreiber, 60, of Tamarac, was arrested earlier this month on a charge of unlicensed practice of health care causing serious injury.
Investigators said the victim met Schreiber, who had his medical license pulled years ago and was recommended by Gonzalez, in the same Hialeah warehouse to remove the filler that was injected by Gonzalez.
"To be honest, it looked professional," the victim told Local 10 News reporter Glenna Milberg. "I kind of trusted it for a while and I was trying to solve a problem. If I go to a professional doctor, it would cost me a lot of money to repair, and I didn't have the money."
According to investigators, the filler was never removed. The patient claims that his penis was further mutilated by Schreiber and that he is unable to function sexually.
"There are a lot of more people out there that suffer and are going through what I'm going through, and they're afraid to come out," the victim said.
Schreiber served two years in prison on similar charges in 2008.
