Eugenio Perez is currently awaiting trial for the sexual assault of five separate female inmates at a Brooklyn detention centre. He recently became something of a viral news story after it emerged that he was caught out by his distinctive penis, which allowed prosecutors to verify that all five women were telling the truth.

Mr Perez worked as a security guard at the centre where he and two other men have been accused of turning the prison into a personal sex den where rape and violence were everyday occurrences.
Both Mr Perez and another man face life in prison if found guilty over their use of coercion and physical violence to force inmates into performing sex acts, while a third faces 60 years over frequently having sex in his office with many of the prisoners.
However, in a peculiar twist, Mr Perez was identified entirely based on his penis. Reporters spoke of how jurors in the case appeared bored and exhausted after days’ worth of evidence was given which all focused on Mr Perez’s unusual penis which was described as “huge, smelly” and “hooked”.
Police were also tipped off by the fact that all five women gave the same nickname when asked about Mr Perez, revealing that he had often forced them to refer to him as the “caballo” – Spanish for horse. Describing how Perez tried to force one woman to touch his penis, before then turning to another nearby inmate and making her watch him masturbate, assistant US Attorney Taryn Merkl said:
“He was not going to take no for an answer. He was The Caballo and he was aroused,” she said.
Today the case began to close and both the defence and prosecutors gave their final statements.

“There is no reason why any of the victims should know anything about his penis. They all remember things about his penis,” said the prosecution. “How would we know these very personal and intimate details if they weren’t forced to live through it?”
Meanwhile the defence stated that all five women had reason to lie given their positions as inmates who would typically hold grudges against the guards. However the defence responded pointing out that it would “ridiculous” to believe that all five women were part of an elaborate conspiracy to defame Mr Perez.
