All four members of Decapitated have been accused of gang-raping a woman following their show in Spokane, Washington, on August 31.
It emerged yesterday that Waclaw Kieltyka, Rafal Piotrowski, Michael Lysejko and Hubert Wiecek had been arrested in Santa Ana, California, and held on charges of first-degree kidnapping – now further allegations against the Polish outfit have emerged.
The Spokesman Review has obtained newly released court papers which accuse the band of gang-raping a woman in the bathroom of their tour bus after the show at The Pin in the city.
The alleged victim and her friend told local police that they were invited on to the band’s tour bus, where one woman “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 newspaper reports that the papers go on to say that the same woman “was uncomfortable and said the band members began speaking to each other in Polish. She described the ‘vibe’ in the bus changed, and one of the members began looking at them like they were prey.”
Court documents say the woman told police that Piotrowski began kissing her and she attempted to push him 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.”
Following the alleged incident, the woman called police and was found two miles from the venue. She was taken to hospital where she underwent a sexual assault examination.
Police say she had “significant bruising to her upper arms consistent with being restrained” and “small abrasions to her knuckles that were scabbed over.”
The woman reported that she “was digging her fist into the wall to try and distract herself from what was happening.”
