Valeria Lukyanova, also known as the “Human Barbie,” was allegedly attacked outside of her home in Ukraine when she returned to her house on Halloween night.
According to the Daily Mail, Lukyanova was entering the lock code on her door when two men came out of the dark and started attacking her.
“I came back home from a shop with bags and entered the door code when two men rushed from the dark and attacked me,” the 28-year-old model, who has transformed herself into looking like every little girl’s favorite toy, explained to the website.
“They said nothing and did not try to rob me. It happened in a flash, they hit me on the head, several times on my jaw, then one of them began strangling me,” she continued. “If it wasn’t for my neighbor who suddenly appeared, I don’t know what would have happened. They saw her and ran away.”
Valeria suffered injuries to her face, lips, and neck, and had to be hospitalized following the attack. “I feel a little better, but my jaw is still hurting badly,” she said. “I have been on the strongest pain killer for four days, but still woke in the middle of the night from horrible pains.”

Since drastically altering her looks, Valeria has received many death threats. While there are skeptics that believe her injuries were from a new bout of plastic surgery, Valeria denies the claims and says she believes that this attack was linked to the threats.
