A self-proclaimed cannibal and his assistant have been charged with castrating a volunteer in a black market "gender reassignment surgery".
They are accused of carrying out the illegal "surgery" on the 28-year-old on a wooden table in a remote cabin in Oklahoma where they kept other victims' body parts in a freezer.
Bob Lee Allen, 53, and Thomas Evans Gates, 42, were charged after being forced to drop the man off at a hospital because he had lost so much blood in their botched operation.
They came into contact with the alleged victim, who has not been named, on Facebook.
According to the volunteer, Allen had advertised that he performed the surgeries and that he recorded them for his own pleasure. The victim travelled from Virginia to the cabin in Oklahoma for the surgery, which Allen said he would perform for free.
He said that Allen assured him he had done the surgery many times, telling him: "No ER (emergency room). No morgue."
The volunteer was awake for the two-hour procedure and had only received numbing injections in and around his genitalia.

Gates is said to have handed Allen tools to use for the procedure.
Once it was over, Allen reportedly told the volunteer he was going to eat his penis and that he kept other body parts in a freezer.
The 28-year-old lost a considerable amount of blood but Allen told him he would not take him to the hospital, claiming instead he would "dump him in the woods".
Allen claimed to have six other people on their way to the cabin to undergo the procedure.

The pair eventually decided the man needed medical care so dropped him off at McAlester Regional Health Center, where the volunteer told the story to staff.
Allen and Gates tried to visit him in hospital and told him to tell doctors that he performed the procedure on himself.
Police searched the cabin on October 15 and found a freezer in Allen's bedroom which contained testicles.
They also found a six-foot tall medicine cabinet full of various medications and medical utensils.
Allen and Gates have been charged with a number of crimes including conspiracy to commit unlicensed surgery-felony, practicing medicine without a license/unlicensed surgery-felony, maiming and failure to bury dead human member-misdemeanor.
