Polish death metal band Decapitated have been accused of kidnapping and gang raping a woman who they invited on their tour bus following a concert in Spokane, Washington. The four members of the band were arrested in Los Angles after a woman said she was held against her will and raped in the band’s tour bus, after a concert on August 31st. According to a report on The Guardian, the woman says that she and a friend were invited on to the band’s tour bus for drinks. The drummer, Michał Łysejko, then allegedly groped one of them, making her uncomfortable. She says she gestured to her friend that they should leave. The victim has then said that she was followed into the tour bus bathroom and raped by each of the band members.
Her friend says she was bruised after being pushed to the floor by Rafal “Rasta” Piotrowski when she refused to give him oral sex. The friends says she left the bus and drove away in her car, before being stopped by police under suspicion of driving under the influence. The rape victim said that she was “carried out of the bus” by the band members following the attack, after which, she called the police.
The band’s lawyer has given the following statement –
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. We have witnesses that can testify to the fact that the accuser came to visit the band of her own free will and left on good terms.
