A casual encounter with a group of young men has resulted in a terrible tragedy for two girls. Male students forced the two girls to play strip-cards and started harassing them sexually afterwards. One of the girls gave up the fight and agreed to have a sexual intercourse with the men. The other girl desperately tried to save her dignity but to no avail: she was brutally raped and thrown out of the window.
A court in the city of Omsk, Siberia, found Sergei Miroshnichenko, a student of the local law school, guilty of rape and brutal homicide. The man was sentenced to 17 years in jail.
The story started when Sergei Miroshnichenko and a friend of his met two girls in a night club. The men invited the girls to continue the party at their place nearby. When the girls came to the men’s apartment the latter offered them to play a game of strip cards. The girls said no to such a mean offer, but their negative answer was not what the men were expecting from them. The males locked the door of their apartment and started harassing the girls.
One of the girls succumbed to their threats and agreed to have sex with Sergei’s friend. However, the other girl continued fighting and calling for help, Sibir newspaper wrote.
Investigators said that the young woman managed to break loose from the attacker’s grip. The girl locked herself in the bathroom and called the police using her cell phone. Miroshnichenko broke the bathroom door, beat the girl and raped her several times before the police arrived.
The student pushed his victim off the balcony afterwards (the apartment was located on the fifth storey). The girl died of severe injuries instantly.
Sergei Miroshnichenko refused to plead guilty on the trial saying that he had had a sexual intercourse with the victim at her own consent.
