Portland, Oregon (The Weekly Vice) - Keemonta Peterson, a 29-year-old Oregon woman was jailed after she allegedly used a box cutter and a pair of pliers to circumcise her 3-month-old son.
According to Portland Police, an investigation was launched back in October of last year when Peterson called 911 asking for medical help for her son.
The boy, just 3-months-old at the time, was rushed to a local hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
Investigators say the emergency was triggered when Peterson used a box cutter and a pair of pliers to circumcise her son. The child reportedly suffered two hours of uncontrollable bleeding before Peterson called 911.
Peterson, who is a mother of four, reportedly told investigators that she got the idea after reading the Bible and then watching a few YouTube videos about the procedure.
She was booked into jail on charges of assault and criminal mistreatment. She was released on Tuesday after the judge lowered her bond to $5,000.
