A Connecticut woman attempting to reconcile with her husband handcuffed herself to him as he slept and then bit him on his torso and arms, police said.

Helen Sun, 37, told police she wanted to have a conversation with her husband Robert Drawbough without him leaving. They said she changed the locks on their bedroom and handcuffed herself to Drawbough while he was sleeping Monday.

Drawbough used a cell phone to call police. Officers heard his screams when they arrived at the couple's Fairfield home. He was treated at a hospital.

Police charged Sun with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and unlawful restraint. She was due in court on Tuesday.
