Man is accused of soliciting rape of his wife on Craigslist
JewishWorldReview.com | (MCT)
Two men, two days in a row, tried to assault an Idaho woman in her home. Now her husband is accused of putting an ad on Craigslist, seeking someone to rape his wife.
"In the ad, the person posted that they wanted to be raped as part of a fantasy," Joshua Palmer, public information officer for Twin Falls, Idaho, said Tuesday.
The situation began to unfold in the wee hours Friday.
About 2 a.m., Twin Falls police received a call about a disturbance at a residence, Palmer said. (The name of the woman was being withheld by authorities on Tuesday. The Los Angeles Times is withholding the name of her husband to protect her identity.)
"She stated that a gentleman she didn't know rang the doorbell."
The woman said he asked her name.
"As soon as she responded with her name, he entered the house forcibly," Palmer said. The man chased her through the house; she went to her bedroom and retrieved a 9-millimeter handgun.

There was a struggle, Palmer said, and a shot was fired that ricocheted off a staircase. No one was injured, but the man took the woman's gun and fled.
The woman's husband returned from work about half an hour later, Palmer said, and the couple called police.
The next evening, he said, police received another call about a disturbance at the home. When officers arrived, they found the woman holding a man at gunpoint.
"Our officers questioned him," Palmer said, "and he said he was responding to an ad that had been posted on Craigslist that he believed had been posted by a 32-year-old female."
Twin Falls County prosecutors say the husband, 32, posted the ad without the knowledge or consent of his wife. That conclusion was based on interviews, evidence and "the entirety of the investigation," prosecutor Grant Loebs said.
The husband exchanged emails with the men to arrange the assaults, prosecutors said.
He was arraigned Monday on charges of solicitation of rape and burglary and is being held on $100,000 bond, Loebs said. A preliminary hearing is set for July 27.
