|As reported by the Associated Press: ``A man has been charged with arranging the sexual assault of his wife to pay off his gambling debt. |
``Police say the man tried to pay off $5,000 in gambling debts through a bizarre plot in which his wife was assaulted by a man she believed was a home intruder.
``The assault occurred as the husband lay awake next to her early Wednesday in their home in a Warren trailer park.
``The 28-year-old woman told police a man held a weapon to her leg and threatened to kill her, Detective Cpl. David Andrews told The Macomb Daily for a recent story.
``The intruder also threatened to kill the husband and told him to put his face in a pillow. After committing three sexual acts, the attacker told the husband he owed $5,000, police said.
``Detectives interviewed the husband and wife separately. She was unaware of the gambling debt.
``...Police said the husband and the unidentified attacker concocted the home invasion ruse. They arrested the husband at his home Thursday...'
They did not specify what charges would be brought against the other man.
