(Newser) – A Greek woman is being hailed as a hero after torching a lecherous British tourist’s genitals, the Telegraph reports. A 23-year-old Briton had allegedly taken off his pants and flashed his privates at women in a nightclub in the resort town of Mallia on the island of Crete. When the man grabbed the 26-year-old woman and "forcefully fondled" her, she poured liquor on his crotch.

When the man kept coming, the woman took a lighter to his alcohol-soaked genitals. The man is in a clinic, having suffered significant damage to his sexual organs. The woman has turned herself in to police, claiming a right to self-defense. In an indication of sympathy, authorities declined to detain her before the trial date.
