A sex-crazed Angelina Jolie lookalike has been handed a suspended jail sentence after a taxi driver claimed she had tried to kill him when he refused to perform a sex act on her for a third time.
Nicolae Stan, 35, told police Luminita Perijoc, 31, had already forced him at knifepoint to have intercourse and perform oral sex during the incident in 2012.
He claims he met Perijoc while he was hired to deliver some bags of shopping to her apartment in the city of Tulcea, in eastern Romania, and when he turned up at the door she had asked for his phone number so that she could engage his services again.
He said several hours later she called and asked him to pick up some bottles of wine and come back to her apartment to deliver them.
When he turned up at the door, she had grabbed him and dragged him inside and demanded sex.
When he refused she pulled out a 10cm knife and forced him to undress, he told the court.
Mr Stan says he only escaped when he managed to barricade himself into a bedroom and dial 999 on his mobile phone.
Police confirmed that they had rescued him from the flat of the half-dressed young woman and that he had been taken to hospital with more than half a dozen stab wounds.
She was initially jailed for five years after a court rejected her claim that she was really the victim.

But an appeal court has now confirmed that the jail sentence be suspended for four years after experts testified that Perijoc's behaviour may have been down to the fact she was on medication at the time.
She had apparently been taking high strength painkillers following an operation.
Mr Stan complained that while she had been let off with a suspended sentence, he had been given a life sentence as he had become miserable due to his friends teasing him.
He said: 'It is terrible. I am now a local celebrity, everyone is talking about me.
'They don't understand why I refused her, but they do not know what it is like to have a mad woman yelling at you at knifepoint.
'They look at her, then look at me and laugh. But I think anyone would find it impossible to perform with a knife at their throat even if they were with Miss Romania.'
The married father-of-three added: 'I think she wasn't used to anyone saying no because she flew into a rage when I declined.
'She took out a knife and forced me to undress and have sex with her.
'But she wasn't satisfied and wanted sex again.
'When I refused she attacked me with a knife, and forced me to have oral sex with her but she still stabbed me,' he added.
