FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) – Fairfield police say they rescued a screaming husband with bite marks on his torso and arms who was handcuffed to his wife, who was attempting to reconcile with him.

Police charged 37-year-old Helen Sun with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint. She was due in Bridgeport Superior Court on Tuesday.

Police say Sun told them she wanted to have a full conversation with husband Robert Drawbough without him leaving. Police say she changed the locks on their bedroom and handcuffed herself to Drawbough while he was asleep.

Drawbough used a cell phone to call police, who heard his screams when they arrived at the couple’s Fairfield home. He was treated at a local hospital.
