BEIJING (AP) — A woman tricked a 6-year-old boy into going into a field in northern China, and then gouged out his eyes, police said today.

The boy’s brutal ordeal happened Saturday in a rural area of Linfen city in Shanxi province, the city’s police bureau said in a statement.

State media said the boy was recovering in a hospital, but had lost his sight permanently.

A police officer who only gave his surname, Liu, said he couldn’t speculate on a motive because the investigation was continuing.

Liu said the boy’s eyeballs were found at the scene, and that the corneas hadn’t been removed.
