A NEWBORN baby needed to be fitted with an artificial anus after suffering sickening sex abuse “by a dad who was furious his girlfriend refused him sex”, a court has heard.

Prosecutors say both parents jointly abused their son when he was just seven weeks old in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

The mum, 26, and her 24-year-old boyfriend – who we are not naming to help protect the child’s identity – are currently on trial for grievous bodily harm and sexual abuse at the regional court in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Palatinate.

The couple were arrested when they took the baby to a hospital where doctors detected severe peritonitis, the inflammation of the peritoneum typically caused by the rupture of an abdominal organ.

Shocked medics also found the baby to be suffering from a skull injury, a cerebral haemorrhage, fractured ribs, bruising to the lungs and heart, and bleeding from the eyes.

They also suspected that the tot had suffered previous fractures.

According to local media, the baby required emergency surgery and an artificial anus as a result of the horrific injuries.

Chief prosecutor Hubert Stroeber said: “Even professionals in my public prosecutor’s office were shocked.”

Court papers claim the mum and dad performed twisted sex acts on the newborn in October last year.

The father allegedly caused a “bloody wound” in the baby’s genital area as well as a “visible and painful bruise”, according to prosecutors.

BOY INJURED ‘IN ANGER’

The mum’s lawyer, Sven Zill, said she was placing most of the blame on her boyfriend.

He told the court: “She was completely overwhelmed with the child, but does not want to escape from responsibility. My client confesses to having harmed the child.”

According to the woman, her boyfriend came home drunk, in an “aggressive” mood and “wanted sex” with her.

The mum said she declined and ordered him to measure the baby’s body temperature with a thermometer.

She accused her boyfriend of injuring their boy “in anger” after she refused to have sex with him.

The mum also said in her statement that the baby’s penis injuries were probably caused by the fact that the dad had demanded a circumcision, which she rejected.

In general, the baby’s father had “roughly handled” him, she alleged.

She was not aware of the severe injuries her child had suffered, and she was sure they were not caused by sexual abuse, the court was told.

Her boyfriend has so far remained silent about the allegations in court.

The couple have been held in custody since last November.

Their baby, who is now nine months old, is believed to still be living with a foster family.

The trial is continuing.
