Dagestan Lawyer Allegedly Rapes Cheating Wife's Boyfriend and Blackmails Him With Video of It

A lawyer in Dagestan who caught his wife cheating on him is accused of beating and raping the man she was cheating on him with and then blackmailing him with a video of the incident, the Investigative Committee said in a statement on Thursday.

The incident, which occurred on Oct. 11 in Makhachkala, saw the suspect and his friends beat both his wife and her lover, before raping the latter on camera, stealing 200,000 rubles from him, and demanding another 2 million rubles to prevent the video from being published, the statement said.

In late October, when the suspect realized that his victim was dilly-dallying in delivering the additional 2 million rubles, he demanded the man's vehicle, according to the statement.

The suspect, whose name was not disclosed, was caught by police on Oct. 29 after the victim tipped off police. During a search of the suspect's vehicle, police confiscated a hand grenade.

The suspect has been taken into custody while police conduct an investigation into the incident. He faces charges of rape, assault, extortion and the illegal weapons possession.
