MCKEESPORT, Pa. —
UPDATE: Police: Microwaved Male Body Part A Hoax
Police said a man walked into the Giant Eagle Get-Go along Lyle Boulevard Thursday night and asked a clerk if he could use a store microwave oven to warm up an item he had wrapped in a paper towel.
The clerk put the item in the oven and turned it on, but police said when she handed the item back to him she saw a severed penis fall out of the paper towel.
Allegheny County homicide detectives have been called in to investigate.
Police said the man grabbed the item and ran out of the store after first going into a restroom.

Police said they found a piece of gauze with blood on it.
At this point, police said they haven't confirmed what the item is, but they also don't believe that the report was a hoax.
