Sometimes a mother just knows when something is wrong.

A Missouri mom's intuition was so strong it caused her to fly to her daughter's Chandler home to find her beaten and bruised. She immediately took her on a plane back home. 

Court documents show, Chandler police arrested 37-year-old Rubin George Albandak on March 8 for his involvement in the attack of his wife on December 27.

Police say that jealousy lead Albandak to the upstairs bathroom of their home near McQueen and Frye roads where he allegedly grabbed her throat and squeezed so hard, she lost consciousness. 

Police report that Albandak also kicked her several times before wrapping an electrical cord around her neck and wrists and dragging her down the stairs.

Police say that when she regained consciousness, she found herself tied to the stairs. Albandak then dragged her to the back yard where he put a rope around her neck, causing her to pass out again.

It was the day after that her mother flew to Arizona because she was concerned and had not heard from her. After bringing her back to Missouri, they contacted authorities for help.

When Albandak was arrested, he blamed the mother saying, "he believed she caused the injuries to her daughter to frame him."

Albandak is facing five counts of assault and aggravated assault and one count of kidnapping.
