The Berkshire Eagle reports  just past 1 a.m. Thursday, police received a 911 call from a man identifying himself as Michael Cook and saying  "I did something I wasn't supposed to,. "Please send an ambulance."

Cook is now facing facing felony charges, accused of severely beating his wife, who remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

A check of Cook's criminal history dating to 1995 — it was included in court documents obtained by The Eagle — shows dozens of counts, including multiple charges of child rape, indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, inducing a minor for sex, and aggravated assault and battery. A dozen restraining orders have been taken out against him, according to a police report.


When police arrived at the couple's Chase Avenue home Thursday morning, Cook told them he got angry with his wife over a personal matter.

Inside the home, police found the woman unresponsive in a bedroom, bleeding from a wound on the back of her head.

An update on her condition was not immediately available .
