Russian 'Black Widow' drugs and rapes 10 men
A "beautiful" woman who collects spiders and horror films is on trial in Russia for drugging and raping 10 men.
Police allege the 32-year-old woman, identified only as Valeria K, would lure men to her home and then give them drinks laced with clonidine, Russian news website Life.ru reports.
The clonidine would knock the men unconscious for about 24 hours.
Valeria — who has already been dubbed the Black Widow because of her love of spiders — would then undress her victims and rape them, prosecutors claim.
The woman is also accused of tying a rope around the men's genitals to keep then erect.
Police say the victims all woke up in hospital with clonidine poisoning and penis trauma.
The men had only hazy memories of their attacker as a friendly brunette who gave them drinks, making the police search for the woman all the more difficult.
But officers eventually indentified Valeria as the offender and arrested her.
Police say all but one of Valaria's alleged victims have filed a complaint against her.
The one man who did not told Life.ru he had enjoyed the experience.
"It was great," the unnamed man was quoted as saying.
"I like hot women. I only wish she hadn't used the clonidine on me."
