A young actress who tried to sell her virginity for £10,000 ended up being raped and forced to pose for erotic pictures - before escaping his clutches through the third floor window.
The woman, identified only as Kristina, decided to sell her virginity to Mikhail Dnistrian, who she met on the internet.
They agreed the terms of the deal, and she left her home in Azerbaijan and travelled almost 2,000 miles from Baku to meet him in the city of Perm, in central Russia.
But when she got there, the man apparently changed his mind - and even tried to claim she owed him money, according to NewsRu.
The 28-year-old, who had paid for her ticket, tried to force her to work as a prostitute.
When she refused, he allegedly beat her up and forced her to pose for erotic pictures, before raping her at his flat.
She only managed to escape his clutches by making a rope with sheets to let herself down from the third floor when he went to work the next day.
But the aspiring actress fell in the process, fracturing her hip.
mages of her dramatic escape attempt were taken by an eye-witness as the girl tried to clamber down the makeshift rope.
Police have arrested Dnistrian, and have since revealed he had already been accused of rape in the past when he lured another victim over to his rented flat who also wanted to sell her virginity.
At the time he was declared insane and was sent to an asylum for treatment, but later released.
ristina told police she was on her own as both of her parents had died and she wanted to collect money to develop her acting career.
Dnistrian's girlfriend, who asked not to be named, admitted she was stunned after learning what had gone on, and claimed he had only ever been kind and gentle with her.
She said: 'I just could not believe it, he was very nice when we first started going out. How am I supposed to trust men after all of this?'
Some people blame the girl for what happened and say she should be fined for trying to sell herself in the first place.
One caller told local radio: 'She provoked this by entering into the world of prostitution.'
But the court in Perm has said there are no grounds for pursuing a case against her for prostitution and are treating her as a victim.
