Brooklyn man stabs, rapes ex-girlfriend in act of vengeance after slitting her friend’s throat
Minutes after his girlfriend broke up with him, a maniacal Brooklyn man busted into her apartment and slit her friend’s throat before stabbing and raping his ex-gal pal, sources said.
The savage attack in Sea Gate spanned five hours — all while the girlfriend’s 11-year-old daughter hid in a bedroom — and left the friend clinging to life on a ventilator, cop sources said Tuesday.
While holding the pair hostage, the jilted suspect, Ruslan Baimov, 40, alternated between kissing his wounded girlfriend, raping her and threatening to kill her.
“After kissing me, he said, ‘Oh, son of a bitch, I’ll kill you. I love you. No, I’ll kill you,’” the girlfriend told the Daily News.
“I said, ‘Please, I have a child… You already have one woman dying. Now you will have two, maybe three.’”
The brutal assault was set in motion after the friend went to visit Baimov’s girlfriend at her apartment near Neptune Ave. and Beach 45th St. shortly before midnight Saturday.
The two went to see Baimov, who lives in the top floor of the two-family home, to tell him the girlfriend was ending their two-year romance, sources said.The women returned to the girlfriend’s place. While she was taking a shower, Baimov pushed in an air conditioner and climbed through the open window, sources said.
“Oh my God! Oh my God!” the friend shouted as the blade-wielding Baimov walked toward her.
“She tried to call 911 but she couldn’t,” the girlfriend told The News.
“Then he took her phone, smashed it, grabbed her neck and said ‘Bitch!’ and then took the knife and stabbed her in the neck.”
As the friend crumbled to the floor, gasping for air, the girlfriend ran into a bedroom and told her daughter to lock the door and not leave the room.
There was blood everywhere,” the girlfriend said.
Baimov grabbed the woman by the throat and threw her onto the couch. He moved to stab her in the neck but stopped short and broke out in sobs, she said.
“He was crying,” the girlfriend said. “He was saying, ‘I don’t want to kill you because I love you.’”
Baimov ripped open her shirt and tried to have sex with her, but the girlfriend shoved him off of her.
The girlfriend’s 38-year-old friend was still lying on the floor, barely breathing and surrounded by blood.
The girlfriend pleaded with Baimov to let her give some water to the critically-injured woman.
“He said, ‘Okay, I’ll give you 30 seconds,’” the girlfriend recalled. “So I gave her some water. She was making these gasping noises but I could hear her drink.”
Baimov’s brief display of compassion switched back to rage.
He grabbed his girlfriend and for a second time attempted to rape her.
He ultimately forced her to perform oral sex in the bathroom.
But the sex act gave way to more violence as Baimov suddenly slashed his girlfriend’s shin with his knife.
Seeing the blood, Baimov stopped the attack and started kissing the wound.
“Then, maybe because he loved me, because he’s crazy, he freaked out and started kissing it,” the girlfriend said. “It was bleeding everywhere.”
The attack stretched on, with Baimov again pouncing on his girlfriend.
Finally, about 4:50 a.m. Sunday, the girlfriend managed to convince Baimov to leave the apartment and return to his place to go to sleep.
The girlfriend’s friend was rushed to Coney Island Hospital, where she remains in critical condition.
Baimov was arraigned Tuesday on attempted murder and rape charges and ordered held without bail.
Assistant District Attorney Ari Rottenberg said the girlfriend’s pal is “brain dead” and “likely to die in a few days.”
