Police: Wife's family helps beat up husband

BENSALEM, Pa. - November 12, 2010

Authorities say she called in her father and her three brothers for reinforcement.

Now, all five of them are charged with a list of offenses.

Police says it started when Fatima Awad confronted her husband in a motel room where he was staying with another woman.

The confrontation moved from the hotel room to the husband's car and the quarreling threesome drove to another location.

That's where police say the rest of the Awad family caught up with them and started to pistol-whip, kick and threaten to kill the husband.

He was taken to the hospital once police officers arrived.

The family members were sent to the Bucks County prison in lieu of $75,000 bail.
