Woman Stabs Date in the Neck as Retaliation for US Drone Strike that Killed Iranian General Soleimani


A Nevada woman was arrested for stabbing a man in the neck that she met through the online dating site Plenty of Fish.

According to police, 21-year-old Nika Nikoubin claimed that she stabbed the man in retaliation for the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

Soleimani was killed by a US drone strike in 2020.

Nikoubin met the unidentified man in a hotel room.

The woman allegedly blindfolded the man as they engaged in sex.

That’s when the man felt “a pain on the side of his neck.”

He then pushed Nikoubin away and ran out the door.

According to the police report, Nikoubin told a hotel employee that she stabbed the man, and later told police she “wanted revenge” for the death of Soleimani.

The Times of Israel reports on this bizarre revenge story:

A woman stabbed her date whom she had met online in retaliation for the 2020 death of Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian general killed in an American drone strike, police said.

Nika Nikoubin, 21, has been charged with attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon and burglary, KLAS-TV reported.

Nikoubin and the man met online on a dating website, Henderson police wrote in an arrest report. The pair then agreed to meet at Sunset Station hotel on March 5, renting a room together.

Here are more details on the woman’s alleged motivation from the New York Daily News:

The date reported feeling “a pain on the side of his neck” while the two were fooling around at Sunset Station Hotel and Casino in Henderson, then pushed Nikoubin off and ran out of the room. Nikoubin also told a hotel employee that she had stabbed the man, according to the arrest report obtained by KLAS.

She told police that she “wanted revenge” and had prepared by listening to a song called “Grave Digger,” which “gave her the motivation… to carry out her revenge.”
