As Revenge for US Killing of Iranian Commander, Woman Allegedly Stabbed Date During Sex


To get revenge for the US killing of an Iranian Commander, a woman allegedly stabbed her date during sex, police said. Nika Nikoubin, 21, 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.

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

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

Police said, while in the room, Nikoubin put a blindfold on the man, and the pair began having sex. Nikoubin turned off the lights. KLAS reported, several minutes later, the man “felt a pain on the side of his neck.”

Police wrote in a report, Nikoubin reportedly stabbed the man in the neck “for revenge against US troops for the killing of Qassem Soleimani in 2020.”

In a drone strike in January 2020, US forces killed Soleimani, a top general in Iran’s military. Soleimani headed the Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, a terror group responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign operations.

The man shoved Nikoubin off of him and ran out of the room to call 911 after the stabbing, said police.

Telling a hotel employee that she had just stabbed a man, Nikoubin also ran out of the room, police said.

Nikoubin told an investigator “she wanted revenge,” police said, after listening to a song called “Grave Digger,” which “gave her the motivation… to carry out her revenge.”

The Las Vegas Review Journal reported that the man’s current condition was unavailable.

The newspaper said, on March 24, Nikoubin is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing. Whether she has a lawyer or not is not clear.
