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.
