Boyfriend fatally knifes paedo masseur who raped his partner when she was 15

A Russian student allegedly killed a "paedophile masseur" who is accused of raping his girlfriend when she was just 15 years old.

Philosophy student Lev Maslennikov, 18, killed Alexander Krizhanovsky, 30, after learning how he had raped his girlfriend over three years ago, it is claimed.

It is reported that Maslennikov stabbed Krizhanovsky, who works as a masseur, 45 times in St Petersburg on September 25, the same day Paulina turned 18.

Maslennikov allegedly created a fake social media account based around his girlfriend, which included pictures of her.

He pretended to be his girlfriend online and used the profile to lure Krizhanovsky to a "date", where he was then attacked and killed.

Maslennikov was carrying out revenge for Krizhanovsky’s alleged rape of Paulina when she was underage.

It is not known whether Paulina was aware of her boyfriend’s plans to kill Krizhanovsky.

Local media report Maslennikov and his partner were stopped at St Petersburg airport trying to leave Russia for Armenia, following Krizhanovsky’s body being found three days earlier.

Police say he confessed to knifing the masseur to death by stabbing him over 45 times.
