KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 16 (Reuters) A Malaysian woman who mistakenly had sex with a houseguest, believing him to be her husband, has complained to police that she was raped, a newspaper said today.
With her husband away at work, the 40-year-old housewife in Malaysia's northeastern state of Terengganu went to bed early on Friday morning, after hectic preparations for celebrations the next day to end the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
About an hour later, she felt a man next to her and proceeded to make love to him, although she did not see his face, the New Straits Times newspaper said.
When the woman's 34-year-old husband walked into the room a short while afterwards, she was surprised to see him in his work clothes, and only realised her error when he questioned her about a man he had seen walking out of the room, the paper said.
Police have arrested the couple's friend, a 29-year-old labourer who has been staying with them for the past couple of months, and are investigating the case as a rape.
