It’s gotta be a tough pill to swallow to learn that your girlfriend is making a living giving naked massages when she told you she was working at a cafe. That type of betrayal can turn a man’s life upside down.
And for 26-year-old Cristian Barbu, it’s going to cost him nearly three years of freedom.
Upon hearing his girlfriend was secretly working at a salacious massage parlor called Passions in Manchester England, an enraged Barbu stormed into the establishment to find his girlfriend naked, giving a 45-minute massage to a customer.
Barbu began his jealous rampage by ripping out the landline, confiscating the receptionist’s phone, and arming himself with a knife from the kitchen.
Over the next hour he terrorized staff, his girlfriend and her client, stripping down to his vest and charging to and fro with the knife, according to Manchester Evening News. Barbu reportedly chased his naked girlfriend around the parlor, grabbing her hair, and dragging her all over the place. The client locked himself in the room, but a ‘highly emotional’ Barbu kicked the door down and began hitting and kicking the man.
What’s more shocking is that during his blind rampage, Barbu paused to smoke cigarettes – and to kiss the hand of the receptionist, who he had refused to let leave the premises.
The venue’s security officer and the owners arrived after the chaos could be heard from the neighbors. The security officer attempted to disarm Barbu, but he bit him in the bicep during the struggle, causing the officer to back off. The incident was finally brought to a halt after the lady owner pulled back Barbu’s thumb, causing him to drop the knife, before everyone piled on top of him, pinning him down.
According to Manchester Evening News, been jailed for 32 months after admitting assault causing actual bodily harm, common assault, possessing a bladed article and criminal damage in the incident on the night of May 3 last year. He faces automatic deportation to Romania, where he has previous convictions for robbery and escape.
