Two men from the North were charged on Sunday with raping, beating, and robbing the wife of an alleged underworld rival in what police suspect was a brutal revenge attack.

The suspects, named as 51-year-old Zur Brukrashwili of Kiryat Ata and 32-year-old Haim Giasov, of Karmiel, allegedly assaulted the young woman in her home, stole 30 thousand Euros, and raped her after she lost consciousness in July.

According to the indictment sheets, served at the Haifa District Court, the suspects, armed with a knife, ambushed the woman as she returned to her home, and wore ski masks.

The suspects then fled the scene, according to prosecutors. The woman was rushed to the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa suffering from broken ribs, a broken nose, and heavy bruising to her face.
