COOS BAY, Ore. -- A former martial arts teacher is on trial for the alleged rape of his wife at their Coquille home.
Forest Freeman was arrested in March after his wife said he raped her following a night of heavy drinking.
The wife testified this week the two had consensual sex, but her husband pinned her down and raped her when she got up to take a shower.
The World newspaper of Coos Bay reports the wife wiped away tears from the witness stand as she listened to herself tell a 911 operator, "'I'm afraid he is going to hurt me.'"
Freeman can be heard in the background: "Hang up the phone. I did not touch you."
The wife testified her inner thighs were bruised for days after the alleged attack.
