The Spokane Police Department‘s Special Victim’s Unit (SVU) is looking for additional witnesses who may have seen what happened outside a downtown Spokane, Washington concert venue on the night of August 31 into the morning of September 1. Court documents say the Polish death metal band DECAPITATED kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman on a tour bus outside The Pin concert venue.
All four members of DECAPITATED — Michal Lysejko, 31, Waclaw Kieltyka, 35, Rafal Piotrowski, 31, and Hubert Wiecek, 30 — were in court in Los Angeles on Tuesday, September 12.
They were arrested at around 2 a.m. Saturday in Santa Ana, California after performing at the Observatory as part of the “Double Homicide” tour with THY ART IS MURDER.
Los Angeles County jail records show the four men were being held without bail. They were awaiting extradition to Spokane.
In court Tuesday afternoon, the band members took turns in front of a judge agreeing to be extradited to Washington, according to KABC. They all had a Polish translator while a representative from the Polish consulate sat in the courtroom.
They reveal the unidentified victim told police in Washington she was sexually assaulted in the bathroom of DECAPITATED‘s tour bus.
The victim and her friend said they were invited for drinks on the bus, and the victim said she was then trapped in a bathroom as each band member took turns raping her while her friend watched.
The woman was later taken to a hospital, and court documents said she had injuries consistent with being restrained.
