Russian model has been thrown in a Dubai detention prison despite giving harrowing new details of her claim that she was fought off ‘a knife-wielding rapist’ – saying she jumped ‘naked’ six floors to save her life.

Supporters of Ekaterina Stetsyuk, 22, who suffered serious back injuries requiring surgery, say she has been locked up because the man made a counter claim that she attacked him.

After two operations on her back, the woman has been moved to a detention centre, say her family.

Her alleged attacker – who she says was a 39-year-old Pakistani businessman – not American as earlier reported – had invited her to discuss a future cosmetics business deal, say her family.

Stetsyuk claimed that he drank wine ‘and became violent’, threatening her with a knife, and demanding that she undress.

‘She was scared and obeyed’, said one report.

Her mother Inga said: ‘He grabbed a large knife from a coffee table, and held her neck.

She managed to grab the knife but he ‘jumped on her and pulled her hair, then pushed her down on the floor,’ reported Life news website in Moscow.

The 22-year-old (pictured) refused to have sex with the man who allegedly held a knife against a throat, she told friends and relatives

She clung onto the knife and wounded him, giving her time to run to the balcony and jumped ‘in fear of her life’.

Her unnamed attacker then fled to the airport where he was detained.

He told Dubai police that she had attacked him – and that in the process of defending himself, he accidentally pushed her out of a window.

The model had two operations and it was reported earlier this week she could not move.

Now, she has been deemed well enough to be transferred to a cell.

The unnamed man has reportedly made a counter claim that Ekaterina (pictured) attacked him and the model is now 'in custody' in her hospital bed

Contrary to earlier reports, she did not break her spine but suffered serious injuries in the fall from what has been reported as a hotel or residential building.

Ivan Gubanov, Russian vice-consul, said she ‘expected the worst’ and was in an ’emotional state’.

He refused to say the reasons she originally came to Dubai, amid reports she had a month-long contract to work as an escort.

She was due to be paid £5,000, the Russian media has reported.

Ekaterina's mother, Inge,  was set to fly from Russia to Dubai to be by her daughter's side

The vice-consul said that she will be required to remain in Dubai for the duration of the investigation.

It is believed she may face prosecution for being alone with a man.
