21-year-old faces attempted murder charge, among others
HENDERSON, Nev. (KLAS) — A woman is accused of stabbing her date she had met online in retaliation for the 2020 death of an Iranian leader killed in an American drone strike, police wrote in court documents.
Nika Nikoubin, 21, faces charges of attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon and burglary.
Nikoubin and the victim met online on the dating website Plenty of Fish, Henderson police wrote in an arrest report. The duo then agreed to meet at Sunset Station on March 5, renting a room together.
While in the room, the pair began engaging in sexual activity, when Nikoubin put a blindfold on the victim, police said. Nikoubin then turned off the lights, and several minutes later, the victim “felt a pain on the side of his neck.”
Nikoubin reportedly stabbed the victim in the neck “for revenge against U.S. troops for the killing of Qasem Solemani in 2020,” police wrote in a report.
U.S. forces killed Solemani in a drone strike in January 2020.
After the stabbing, the victim pushed Nikoubin off of him and ran out of the room to call 911, police said.
Nikoubin also ran out of the room, telling a hotel employee that she had just stabbed a man, police said.
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.”
A judge set bail at $60,000.
Prosecutors said Nikoubin has no ties to the Las Vegas community.
Who is Nika Nikoubin?
The suspect's Facebook profile suggests that she is a Las Vegas resident that previously worked as a front desk associate at Cycle Bar. She attended the University of California, Los Angeles, and was part of the university's debate team. A post by UCLA's debate team in 2020 said Nikoubin was a third-year student and that was her first year as a JV coach.
After the attack, the victim, who said he "felt a pain on the side of his neck", managed to push Nikoubin aside and call 911. Nikoubin reportedly approached a hotel employee and confessed that she had just stabbed a man. She later told police that she attacked him because she "wanted revenge" but did not wish to kill him. As per a police complaint, Nikoubin said that she wanted "revenge against US troops for the 2020 killing of Qasem Solemani", but it is unclear why she carried out the attack on his particular man. "She advised that there are injustices, in particular the killing of Qasem Soleimani in Iran," the police report said.
Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian major general, was assassinated by the United States via a drone strike at Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020. Soleimani was killed while he was on his way to meet Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi in Baghdad. Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force, was considered the second most powerful person of Iran, subordinate to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
Five Iraqi nationals and four other Iranian nationals were also killed during Soleimani's assassination, including the deputy chairman of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and commander of the Iran-backed Kata'ib Hezbollah militia, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. The incident took place during the 2019–2022 Persian Gulf crisis.
