Man with no penis admits sexually assaulting two women

Carlos Delacruz ‘pretended to have sex’ by inserting unknown object into his partners

A man with no penis has admitted assaulting two women who thought that they were having sex with him.

Carlos Delacruz, from Banknock in Scotland, is understood to have simulated penetrative sex with the women but was instead using an unknown instrument.

The victims, who cannot be named for legal reasons, complained of “extreme pain” during what they thought was intercourse with 35-year-old Delacruz during their relationships with him, The Times reports. Both women suffered yeast infections afterwards.

Referring to one of the women, who dated Delacruz for almost three years from May 2013, prosecutor Kirsten Cockburn told Edinburgh Sheriff Court: “She believed she was being penetrated by his penis. The accused does not have a penis.”

Delacruz was in a relationship with the other women from August 2016 to May 2017, according to the Daily Mail.

He refused to allow either of his lovers to see him naked or to touch his lower body, and performed in bed with the lights out, the court heard.

Cockburn said the women believed Delacruz was “self-conscious about his body” and that the accused “always wore a T-shirt during sex”.

On one occasion, Delacruz turned his back while in bed with one of them “and she heard him with a [condom] wrapper. The accused turned around and inserted his penis into her,” Cockburn added.

The Daily Telegraph reports that both women discovered the truth after the second split up with Delacruz in 2017, and informed the police.

He was medically examined while in custody and it was found that he did not have a penis. No details of Delacruz’s gender position were given in court, the Mail adds.

Delacruz is due to be sentenced in September and has been placed on the sex offenders register.
