A man in Mexico has allegedly forced his younger girlfriend to wear a padlock on her jeans so that she would stay faithful to him.
The 25-year-old woman, who has not been identified, went to authorities in Veracruz and said that she was in pain after being unable to go to the bathroom for hours.
She told them that, for years, her 40-year-old boyfriend had padlocked her into her jeans but that she was too afraid of him to cut herself out.
