A BLOODIED Brit was found wandering the streets in a Spanish city with his penis in a plastic bag after chopping it off at home, reports claim.
The 33-year-old Londoner shocked onlookers who raised the alarm when they saw him bleeding heavily in a central street in the north-eastern city of Zaragoza last Friday.

He told cops he had chopped off his own manhood and investigators said he may have been under the influence of drugs or could have mental health problems.
Newspaper El Heraldo de Aragon reported that cops found the expat had registered on a social networking app in search of a candidate to film him mutilating himself.
The paper reported that a local man from Zaragoza claimed he saw another person living in the city was using an app to find someone who would film him while he cut off his penis.
“After we published a story on Monday about what had happened, the news appeared on Twitter, Facebook and other social media,” the paper said.
“A man from Zaragoza subsequently used Twitter to claim that a few weeks ago he saw another person living in the city was using a social networking app to look for someone who would film him while he cut off his penis.
“At that moment he didn’t think it was true, but after he found out what had happened last Friday, he immediately linked what he had read with what had occurred.
“One of the passers-by who saw the mutilated man bleeding last Friday in Gran Via read the Twitter messages afterwards and contacted the man who had written them and asked him if he could send him the profile picture of the man who was looking for someone to film him amputating his penis.
“When he saw the photo, the witness realised that it corresponded with the person he had seen bleeding.”
The paper added: “The police have been told all this and have begun to investigate whether anyone responded to the macabre invitation of the young man.”
It said that although officers currently believed the injured man was alone, they were not ruling out the possibility he was filmed by another person.
Local reports have said the operation to reattach the man’s penis has been successful but it is not yet known if it is back to full working order.
