OGDEN -- A woman managed to finally escape this morning after being kidnapped and attacked for about seven hours when her husband flew into a jealous rage.
The Ogden Police Department booked the husband, a 28-year-old Ogden resident whose name will not be identified to protect the identity of the victim, into jail on a litany of charges on Monday morning.
The attack started before midnight Sunday when the woman returned from work.
Lt. Scott Conley with the Ogden Police Department said the man made his wife wear a Bluetooth device at all times so he could monitor her movements.
"He's very jealous of any other contact with any other individuals she might have," Conley said.
When she returned home, the husband questioned his wife about a song he believes another man sang to her. The argument ended up in the bedroom, where the husband tied his wife to the bed.
Into the early hours of the morning, the man hit, burned and raped his wife.
When the husband became distracted by one of the two children under the age of 5 who lived in the home, the wife managed to free herself and put on some clothes.
After further discussion in the family's kitchen, the wife fled the home, running for help to a nearby residence at about 5 a.m. The residents let her in, but she worried her husband would arrive with weapons, so the police were called.
When the husband arrived, Conley said, he wore a bulletproof jacket and was armed with an assault rifle and a pistol, kicked his way into the residence and demanded to see his wife.
When officers arrived, the man complied with orders to drop his weapons and was taken into custody.
"It was fortunate that no one was hurt in the escalation, with the weapons that were involved," Conley said.
Ogden police booked the man into Weber County Jail on charges of rape, object rape, aggravated burglary, assault, kidnapping, domestic violence in the presence of a child, displaying a weapon in a threatening manner and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The family had moved to the area only a few months ago. The husband has no prior convictions in Utah, Conley said.
