Marina, 31, reportedly attacked a man with a knife, stabbing him in the head, in Kharkiv, Ukraine, before going through his pockets and leaving him on the floor
During heated debates, the 31-year-old date, identified only by her first name of Marina, stabbed the man with a kitchen knife, letting the blade enter six inches into his head, police said.
A video filmed by witnesses shows the man lying unconscious on the ground moments after being attacked by Marina.
She can be seen rummaging in the man’s pockets reportedly for his money while the knife is sticking out of the right part of his head.
Moments later the woman grabs the knife handle trying to pull the weapon out of his motionless body.
After failing, she goes away leaving her victim lying on the tarmac alone.
The woman then attempts to pull the knife out of the mans head, but she’s unable to dislodge it
She tries to pull the knife out of the man’s head again, lifting his head off the ground, but it won’t budge. She then gives up and leaves the scene
Marina’s friend, named as Anton, who lives in the apartment block said to local media: ‘She came to me and said she stuck a knife into the man’s head.
‘I did not believe her at first then looked out of the window and saw him lying near the bench.
‘She said she became furious after he groped her bottom.’
It is believed, Marina carried a knife for self-defence.

Meanwhile, the witnesses called emergency services and the victim was rushed to hospital in critical condition.
Patrol policewoman Kateryna Misina told: ‘When we arrived the man was lying in the pool of his own blood. The suspect had pulled the knife out of his head trying to cover-up the incident.’
Doctors from the Kharkiv City Clinical Hospital are still battling for the man’s life.
A source in the hospital said: ‘The man’s condition is very grave. He could have had higher chances to survive if the knife hadn’t been touched until medical help came.’
The incident took place on April 9 in the northeastern city of Kharkiv, Ukraine, outside this block of flats near a park where the pair had been drinking alcohol when a quarrel broke out
