Determined to talk, wife handcuffs self to husband

A woman is in trouble with the law for making her estranged husband a prisoner of love. Helen Sun, 37, of Tunxis Hill Road, was arrested last night after police said she handcuffed her 32-year-old husband to herself because it was the only way he would talk to her.

Sun was charged with unlawful restraint, third-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and disorderly conduct. The charges were filed after police said they had to break down doors to the house and a locked bedroom where Sun allegedly was holding the man captive.

Police said she handcuffed her husband as he slept, and bit and scratched him when he called police on a cell phone.

Listen to the 911 call from the husband here.

When police arrived at the couple's Tunxis Hill Road home around 10:40 p.m., officers heard a man screaming for help. They had to break down the home's front door because all the entrances to the home were locked.

Officers also had to break into the locked bedroom to rescue the man, and then uncuffed the couple.

Police said the husband had bite marks on his arms and torso, as well as marks on his wrist from the handcuffs. Helen Sun was released on a $100 bond and told to stay away from the couple's home.
