Man attacks and allegedly raped his estranged wife while she slept

A man who attacked and allegedly raped his ex-wife while she was sleeping turned himself in to police. A man's separated wife lies in a coma in the hospital after a brutal attack.


The Surasak man (last name reserved) reported his abusive actions to the police yesterday. A 40-year-old man confessed to police that he strangled his ex-wife until she passed out because she refused to have sex with him.

Officers arrived at Surasaka's home in Fon Tong sub-district in Isaan Kalasin province and found his wife, 39-year-old Sarika (surname reserved), lying on a bed with a bloody mouth.

Surasak told the police that he had a strong desire to have sex, so he sneaked into his wife's room. She refused and angered him, lost control of herself, and so he strangled her.

Surasak said that he was with his wife for seven years, but after a serious quarrel, he decided to leave and slept in a separate room.

Chaosod reported that Sarika was in critical condition. The doctor said that her brain did not have enough oxygen, because of which she lost consciousness, and her front teeth were also broken.

Surasaku was initially charged with physical assault, for which he was sentenced to imprisonment for up to two years and a fine of up to 40,000 baht under section 295 of the Penal Code.
