“This one is a little … let’s just say sensitive,” the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post announcing the arrest of Gary Van Ryswyk. “You could even say it’s kinda nuts.”
Deputies responded on Aug. 18 to a home in Sebring, located 90 miles east of Tampa, after a terminated 911 call. Van Ryswyk, 74, answered the door and allegedly said he had just castrated a man.
“Deputies found the man on the bed with a towel over his groin, which was bleeding heavily,” the sheriff’s department said.
