The 21-year-old woman reportedly stabbed her date, whom she met on the dating website, inside a hotel room as a form of retaliation for the death of a military leader killed in a US drone strike in 2020. She and the male victim reportedly met on a dating website Plenty of Fish. The woman then lured her victim to a hotel, where they rented a room together.
The 21-year-old woman from Nevada, Nika Nikoubin, was arrested and charged with multiple charges, including: attempted murder, two counts of battery and burglary of a business, KLAS-TV reported.
Police officials said the 21-year-old suspect and the male victim reportedly met on a dating website Plenty of Fish. The 21-year-old woman then lured her victim to the Sunset Station Hotel and Casino on March 5.
They reportedly rented a room together and as the pair proceeded to become intimate, the suspect reportedly put a blindfold on the man before turning off the lights.
Nikoubin then stabbed the victim in the neck for revenge against US troops for the killing of Iranian military leader, Qassem Soleimani, in 2020, KTLA reports.
After he was stabbed, the unidentified man reportedly fled the hotel room and called 911.
The extent of the victim’s injuries is unknown at this time.
The 21-year-old suspect reportedly told a hotel employee that she had just stabbed a man.
During an interview with investigators, the woman reportedly said that she wanted revenge, saying she had listened to a song called ‘Grave Digger’ which gave her the motivation to carry out her revenge.
The suspect also told investigators that she only wanted to hurt the man, not kill him, according to reports.
She is being held on $60,000 bail pending a court appearance on March 24.
This incident remains under investigation.
