Metro police arrested a man Monday for attempting to rape his cousin in order to prevent her from getting married.
According to police affidavits, Alaa Mikhaiel does not like his cousin's boyfriend and doesn't want them to marry.
Mikhaiel, 26, went to her apartment Monday and persuaded her to get into his car. He then drove the victim, against her will, to the Hamilton Creek boat ramp area.
Once there, Mikhaiel began pulling off the victim's clothes while telling her "I'm going to rape you," an affidavit stated.
The victim fought the suspect off until he finally opened her car door and shoved her out.
Had Mikhaiel raped his cousin, her boyfriend likely wouldn't have married her to due to "Egyptian customs."
Mikhaiel was charged with kidnapping, attempted rape and domestic assault.
He made bond and was released from jail Tuesday.
A jury trial was set to start Monday for a retired Clarksville police officer accused of rape, but instead he pleaded guilty to sexual battery.
