TWIN FALLS (AP) — An Idaho man is charged with soliciting men to rape his wife through a posting in the "casual encounters" section of Craigslist.

The 32-year-old Twin Falls man was arraigned Monday on charges of solicitation of rape and burglary. His bail was set at $100,000. The Associated Press is withholding his name to protect the alleged victim's identity.

Prosecutors say that without his wife's knowledge or consent, the man posted a classified ad posing as a woman who fantasized about being raped, and then exchanged emails with the men who responded to arrange the assaults.

Twin Falls police were called to the woman's house shortly after midnight Thursday and again Saturday afternoon to reports that two different men had broken into the home.

The woman told police a man rang the woman's doorbell early Friday, asked her name and then said: "I'm here for you," before forcing his way into the house.

The woman said the man chased her through the house. She went into the bedroom to grab a 9 mm gun, but the man grabbed the weapon. The gun went off during the struggle. No one was injured, but she said the man fled.

The woman also fired a shot Saturday and held the uninjured man at gunpoint until police arrived, court records said.

Investigators said the second man told police he was responding to a Craigslist ad.

"The person posting the ad told him she wanted to be forcibly raped as that was a fantasy of hers," the man told police.

The police report said several emails were exchanged between the man and the person who posted the ad. The man was then given the address.

"He was told to force his way inside and rape the woman there and not stop no matter how much she resisted," the report said.

Police said they discovered the emails originated from an email address belonging to the woman's husband. Officers also searched phones in the house and one belonging to the husband.

Court records say the husband acknowledged setting up the attacks using Craigslist and his email account.

The man's preliminary hearing is set for July 27.

    I'm right there with you, "Your Neighbor"! The husband deserves to spend the rest of his life getting raped in prison.

    Not that I think there should be, but I wonder if there will be any charges brought against the would-be rapists.

    They were seduced into a sick game. But I just don't see where they really broke any laws.
    They were invited into the home, they believed by the wife, but invited none the less. So I don't see breaking and entering an issue. They further believed they were only playing a part in this woman's fantasy, albeit sick and perverted by most beliefs.

    It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
