Police in Russia are tracking a gang – apparently including a doctor – who drugged a TV soap actor and removed his testicles.
Dmitry Nikolaev, 30, had a drink with a ‘young blonde woman’ who approached him at a bar after he finished a performance at a small Moscow theatre.
Flirting with him, she invited him to a sauna, and though he was married, he agreed to go with her.
‘They kissed and had some more beer and after that the actor remembers nothing,’ said a police source.
He woke up next day at a bus stop, feeling acute pain, and with blood on his trousers.
They fear a gang seeking to sell human organs on the black market.
The actor, now working as a children’s animator, was too embarrassed at first to explain what had happened to his wife, said media reports.
Russia’s Life News carried exclusive pictures of the victim in hospital.
