In a video, a woman from Iran is seen confessing to seducing a Nevadan man and then stabbing him in revenge for the U.S. drone strike that killed Qasem Solimani, an Iranian general.
Nika Nikoubin, a woman who was on the Plenty of Fish dating site, allegedly met a man on March 5. They rented a room at Sunset Station Hotel and casino in Henderson, Nevada.
The couple allegedly began to engage in sexual activity. Police said Nikoubin put a blindfold on the victim, turned off the lights, and then stabbed him in the hotel room near Las Vegas.
The victim told the grand jury, “She turned off the light and then afterward I started to feel a pressure on my neck, and it got sharp, so I panicked and said, ‘What the [expletive] are you doing?’ I screamed. ‘What the [expletive] are you doing?’ And I shoved her off me, you know, still yelling like, ‘What the [expletive] are you doing?’ And then she says, ‘Sorry,’ and then she ran out of the room.”
The man called the police at 10:30 p.m. According to reports, the victim sustained at least two puncture wounds during the attack.
Police claimed that Nikoubin was found naked on the 14th floor in a utility room. The 22-year-old was interviewed by law enforcement and admitted that she had stabbed the man in retaliation to the U.S. military strike against Qasem Soleimani, on Jan. 3, 2020.
KLAS-TV released Friday’s video of Nikoubin being interviewed by police.
In the video, Nikoubin tells a police officer that they had been drinking and then started to get into things. Then I stabbed him.
The officer inquired, “Did your plan to meet [the victim] in order to hurt him?”
She said, “Yes.”
Nikoubin answered, “Hurt him” when she was asked if she had stabbed him in an attempt to harm or kill him.
She admitted that she had stabbed him as revenge for the fatal drone strike on Soleimani.
The investigator was told by her that she had stabbed him out of spite and revenge.
“It was the U.S. that killed Soleimani. Nikoubin said that there was a lot of bloodsheds.” “So, I think it’s only fair that American blood gets spilled,” Nikoubin said.
Nikoubin, a UCLA student, said that Americans are cool but not fair.
She declared, “I felt like somebody on American soil should also die,”
Nikoubin was indicted by a grand jury of Clark County on two counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon due to certain, actual, or perceived characteristics of a victim and one count of battery.
Nikoubin was diagnosed by a doctor with generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, and paranoid personality disorder.
According to the doctor, Nika’s paranoia could lead to dangerous and unsafe behavior, such as self-harm or harm to others, based on clinical observation and client self-report.
Nikoubin’s spokesperson said that she had received mental health treatment, and was currently under house arrest in Texas.
Nikoubin was found competent to stand trial by a judge in April.
According to her website, Nikoubin moved to America in 2012 with her family.
