In Arizona, a 43-year-old man named Ansar Muhammad is facing an array of charges after threatening to kill his wife. However Muhammad claims that “Islamic Law” allowed him to do just that.
Charges against Muhammad include assault and imprisonment for punching, strangling, and sexually assaulting his wife.
Luckily, the victim was able to escape and flee to a nearby home where she called the police. According to the police report, the couple was arguing about an alleged affair.
The report includes some gruesome details of the attack, during which Muhammad put his wife in a vehicle against her will, and began to physically assault her. When she tried to leave, Muhammad told her he could kill her, due to his “Islamic belief.”
His wife was left with multiple bruises and other minor injuries from the incident.
