Girl faces up to 10 years in prison for "harming a rapist"
The man who attacked the girl wrote a statement to the police.
19-year-old Khimki resident Daria Ageny is accused of causing grievous bodily harm to a Tuapse resident. During the summer holidays, she fought off the attacks of the man, using a knife to sharpen pencils. The attacker filed a complaint with the police, and now Daria faces up to 10 years in prison.
It all happened in June of this year. Daria Ageny rested in Tuapse, one evening she left the hostel and went to the store for water. On the way back, a drunken man began chasing her, started to ask her questions, and then grabbed her and pressed against a wall.
The girl pulled out a knife for grinding pencils from her bag and hit the attacker a couple of times.
“He attached from the back, and when he bent me, my hands were free. I was able to open the knife and started waving it. The man then ran away,” Daria Ageny told RIA Novosti. After the attack, the girl ran to the hostel, and the next day left the city.
The girl did not go to the police, because she did not consider that someone was seriously injured in this incident - there were no traces of blood on the pencil sharpener. But in August, when the girl was already at home, law enforcement officers came to her.
“In August, three policemen arrived, they arrested me, said that I am a murderer, that they would put me in prison. And they took me to Sheremetyevo; then we flew to Tuapse. I had nothing with me, only documents. Immediately my mom arrived there; we lived there for two weeks while the investigation was going on,” Ageny told RIA Novosti.
As it turned out, the attacker initiated the proceedings. The girl recognized him at the confrontation. The man claims that Daria approached him and asked where the hostel was, after which he took her there while reading poetry, and the woman took out a knife and ripped his stomach, injuring intestines.
Now Daria is charged under part 2 of Article 111 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Intentional Infliction of Grievous Bodily Harm with the use of weapons). This article provides for punishment of up to 10 years in prison.
The case was recently sent to the Prosecutor's Office, but the department did not agree with the conclusions of the investigation and sent the material for further research. The Tuapse police are reviewing the documents.
