A crazed lover allegedly poured acid over his girlfriend’s face and set fire to her in a fit of rage over a photo of her ex-boyfriend’s dog. The woman, known as Yekaterina M, claims her partner Vyatcheslav poured the acid over her in his flat in Moscow, Russia.
The traumatised 24-year-old said he then set fire to the chemical with a lighter and held her down so she could not put out the flames. Yekaterina told local media how the fire started as they struggled in Vyatcheslav’s bathroom: ‘The shirt I was wearing immediately started to burn.’
She added: ‘I was trying to take it off, but he held me. Only later did he turn on the shower and put out the flames.’ Despite her agony, Vyatcheslav allegedly kept her in the flat away from medical treatment for two hours.
The shocking attack reportedly happened after a night in with friends when Yekaterina took a prank photo of her pet dog sitting on the door of the oven.
Jealous Vyatcheslav told her not to share the snap with her ex-boyfriend, who had co-owned the dog with her.
She explained: ‘He asked me not to share this photo, but I did, in our chat.’
And when her new boyfriend found the photo in the sent box of her phone, he went wild, Yekaterina claimed.
She explained: ‘He thought that I wanted to get back with my ex. He told me that I had five minutes to leave the place.
‘My dog was still in there, so I could not abandon it there. I was trying to make a joke out of the situation.’
Police are now said to be questioning about the attack.
