Decapitated members accused of gang-raping woman

Decapitated

More details have surfaced regarding the alleged incident that took place following extreme metal band Decapitated's August 31 show in Spokane, Washington which eventually landed all four members of the group in a Los Angeles County jail.

According to court documents obtained by The Spokesman-Review, the alleged victim told police that her and a friend were invited to the band's tour bus to have drinks after the show. Not long thereafter, one of the women "described being excited to be on the bus, and then one of the band members began grabbing her breasts," court documents say. "He was later identified as the drummer, Michal Lysejko." The woman went on to say that she "was uncomfortable and said the band members began speaking to each other in Polish." She explained that the "vibe" in the bus had shifted, and "one of the members began looking at them like they were prey."

The woman said she looked at her friend "to signal they needed to get out of there." She then attempted to use the bathroom and was followed by Decapitated vocalist Rafal Piotrowski, court documents say. The woman claims that Piotrowski then began kissing her and started to undo her belt. She "attempted to push Piotrowski away but he grabbed her arm and spun her around to where she was facing the sink and mirror in the bathroom. She saw in the mirror and out of the corner of her eye each of the band members taking turns raping her."

The other woman told authorities that she watched as the band members raped her friend. Piotrowski then allegedly asked her to perform oral sex on him, and was "pushed to the ground and received bruises to her knees and shins" when she refused.

Shortly after exiting the tour bus and driving away, the friend was pulled over by police on suspicion of driving under the influence. While detained in a police car, the friend used her cellphone to call the other woman, who reported the rape.

The alleged victim "described her body as feeling broken," according to court documents. "After an unknown amount of time," she told police, "Waclaw [Kieltyka] helped her put her clothing on and carried her out of the bus with another male."

The woman was eventually taken to Providence Holy Family Hospital for an assault examination. Detectives noted she had "significant bruising to her upper arms consistent with being restrained" and "small abrasions to her knuckles that were scabbed over."

Upon interview late last week by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, Lysejko "made no comment other than he did not know who the girls were" upon being presented a photo of the pair. Lysejko refused to talk further without a translator.

Meanwhile, guitarist Waclaw Kieltyka told detectives he saw both Piotrowski and bass player Hubert Wiecek engaged in a sex act with the woman in the bathroom. Piotrowski "admitted there was a party on the bus and (the women) were present" before requesting an attorney and a translator. Kieltyka provided a DNA sample, but Piotrowski refused to do so.

Wiecek admitted the women had been on the bus, but claimed that he "sat on the couch and did not see what was going on." He also requested a translator and refused to give a DNA sample.

All four members remain in jail facing extradition to Spokane. The band's attorney, Steve Graham, said Monday that, "Decapitated plan to fully fight the allegations that are brought against them, and we are fully confident that the other side of this story will be heard."

How do you get yourself in a gang abuse situation and then get pulled over for DUI moments later to sit in a back of a police car?

No woman deserves to be abused, but it really makes me shake my head when I see any female(s) happily agreeing to go into a green room, van/bus, hotel room, etc.

If the band member/artist inviting you was just going to sign an autograph, take a photo, or give you a t-shirt, certainly this would be done in general public. What exactly do you think any guy's ultimate hopes are with you and/or your friends in the room/vehicle? Sex. Duh.

On the flip side, Spokane is rough. I wouldn't be surprised to read that the fathers of the women murder the death-metallers.

Who knows what really happened. But it is scary how a female can yell abuse and your ass is sitting in a jail cell for a couple months until this shit gets straightened out.

They're in Los Angeles County Jail. That's probably the worst place you can end up. And if the inmates find out you're there for being a rapist that's almost as bad as being a pedophile in the pen. Their jerks gon get sore.

They probably watched too much bang bus and thought it was real. Also, who fcking knows that the story is. Maybe the girls got into something and then decided to bounce and blame the band. Not victim blaming, but isn't the first time this has happened

Vitek Kieltyka is turning in his grave. This is just sad. Whether this is true or not, I AM glad to hear that it seems Vogg wasn't involved. I would be astonished if Decapitated remained afloat following this. At very least, the other band members' musical careers are likely finished. Best-case scenario: Vogg will bury Decapitated and go solo.

Mort Goldberg here. At this juncture I can confirm our representation for the accused in this matter. I remind you standard of evidence is the level of certainty and the degree of evidence necessary to establish proof in a criminal or civil proceeding. I've got my finger on the dial to the DA's office. Every inch of Washington justice will be served.

So she stayed the night after being "gang abused" (grouped), leaves on good terms, and then is still so drunk when she leaves that she's immediately pulled over for DUI. In the middle of her DUI arrest she suddenly claims she's been gang abused .... yeah I'm sure that's not a ploy to try to get out of your DUI arrest. Typical

And before any white knight tries to say drunk people can't consent/can't know what they're doing, consider how that defense would sound in a DUI trial/ murder trial/ any other circumstance where a drunk person does something they regret

Hey idiots, the issue isn't that she was drunk when they (allegedly) abused her, it's that she (allegedly) said no and they did it anyway. Even if she was sober throughout the whole thing and hen got pulled over later for speeding instead of a DUI, what she is describing is still abuse. But go ahead and call me an SJW or a white knight in between fapping sessions in your mom's basement
