Someone else was up to no good on Craigslist.

A North Carolina man is in jail charged with using the website to hire a man to rape his wife.

Police in Kannapolis said the woman was assaulted Sunday when she woke to find a man holding a knife standing at the foot of her bed.

The report said the woman's husband was in the bed with her at the time of the assault, yet did nothing to help her.

Police became suspicious when they learned he never tried to stop the attack, and did nothing to comfort her afterwards.

Detectives are hoping the Craigslist trail will lead them to the rapist.

The husband is being held on a $200,000 bond.
