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

 

Nika Nikoubin, 21, has been charged with attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon and burglary. Nikoubin and the man met online on a dating website. The pair then agreed to meet at Sunset Station hotel on March 5, renting a room together.

 

While in the room, the pair began having sex when Nikoubin put a blindfold on the man, police said. Nikoubin then turned off the lights, and several minutes later, the man “felt a pain on the side of his neck.”

 

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

 

When talking to police, Nikoubin told an investigator “she wanted revenge,” police said. She said she had listened to a song called “Grave Digger,” which “gave her the motivation… to carry out her revenge.”

 

Nikoubin is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing March 24.
