US man arrested for posting ad seeking rapist for wife

Posted on July 23, 2012


WASHINGTON: A 32-year-old man from the state of Idaho in United States has been arrested after he posted an advertisement on a website seeking a man to enter his home and rape his wife.

The ad was posted in the ‘Casual Encounters’ section of Craigslist and was headlined simply ‘Want to help me’ Idaho’s Twin Falls county police officer Justin Dimond said in the arrest warrant, according to CNN.

The husband has been charged with solicitation of rape and burglary. He admitted to having sent e-mails to one Michael Combs asking that he rape his wife.

Combs told police that he responded to the person who posted the ad, who said his wife ‘wanted to be forcibly raped as that was a fantasy of hers’ and urged him ‘not to stop no matter how much she resisted”, the CNN reported.
Police responded to a distress call from the couple’s house, where they found the woman holding Combs at gunpoint and arrested him.

The incident marked the second time in two days last week that police were called to the house. Earlier, the woman, who was also not identified, had struggled with another man who fled after pulling the gun out of the woman’s hand, according to the warrant. The man who posted the ad was being held on $100,000 bond, with a hearing scheduled for this month. Neither Combs not the husband and wife could be reached for comments.
