ORLAND PARK, Ill., March 18 (UPI) -- Illinois police said a man who allegedly paid two people $400 each to attend a sex party at his home told his wife and officers he was taken hostage.
Police said Geries Fakhoury, 32, was in his underwear with another man in his Orland Park bedroom when his wife, whose name was not released, awoke on the night of March 7, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.
Fakhoury told his wife the man, identified as Thomas Chatham, 35, and a woman who was downstairs, Shina Tousant, 49, had threatened him with a screwdriver as he was entering the home at about 10 p.m. and were holding him hostage.
Police said he attempted to convince his wife to accompany him downstairs but she refused to leave the bedroom. The wife said Fakhoury would not let her call police until after the pair left with his wallet, garage door opener and car keys.
Investigators said Fakhoury told them the pair also stole $800, but investigators later determined he had paid them to attend a sex party at his house and made up the story of being held hostage.
Fakhoury was charged with felony disorderly conduct. Chatham and Tousant were arrested March 8 and charged with misdemeanor prostitution.
