After having sex with a houseguest, a Malaysian woman filed a rape complaint with the police saying she mistakenly thought the man was her husband, according to a press report.
The 40-year-old housewife, from the northeastern state of Terengganu, told police she went to bed early Friday morning after hectic preparations for celebrations the next day to end the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, according to the New Straits Times daily.
Her husband was away at work when she went to bed. About an hour later, she said she felt a man next to her and “proceeded to make love to him,” saying she did not see his face.
The woman added that she was surprised to see her 34-year-old husband walked into the room a short while afterwards him in his work clothes. She claimed to have only realized “her error” when he questioned her about a man he had seen walking out of the room, according to the Malaysian paper’s report.
Police have arrested the couple's friend, a 29-year-old laborer who has been staying with them for the past couple of months, and are investigating the case as a rape.
