PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A 41-year-old man is being held on $5 million bail after police say he castrated a paraplegic during a dispute at an assisted living facility in Philadelphia.

Authorities say Edgar Bonilla is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and other counts in Monday night's attack inside the Inglis Apartments at Elmwood.

Lt. John Walker says Bonilla was visiting a female friend at the facility and that she apparently had some sort of dispute with the victim. Walker says Bonilla was apparently trying to settle that dispute. The victim, Bonilla and the woman were all apparently friends.

Bonilla is in custody and it couldn't immediately be determined if he had an attorney. The name of the victim wasn't released, but he remains in critical condition at a hospital.
