Members of a Polish death metal band have been arrested after they were accused of kidnapping a woman following a gig.

All four members of hardcore group Decapitated allegedly held the victim against her will after a show in Spokane, Washington, as part of the band’s “Double Homicide” tour.

A spokesman for the Spokane Police Department said: “On September 1st, 2017, just before 2.00am, Spokane Police received a call from a victim reporting an incident that happened after a concert in downtown Spokane.

“A patrol officer responded and assisted the victim. The report was then sent to the Special Victim’s Unit for follow up.”

The force said police in Los Angeles, where the band were continuing their tour, then took the four men into custody on suspicion of first degree kidnapping.

Band members Michal Mikolaj Lysejko, 27, Waclaw Jan Kieltyka, 35, Rafal Tomasz Piotrowski, 31, and Hubert Edward Wiecek, 30, deny the allegations, according to local media reports.

The band’s defence lawyer Steve Graham told the Spokesman-Review newspaper: “There is another side to this.

“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.”

He added: “I made it clear [to police] that I could get the guys up here ASAP and they would cooperate.”

Representatives for Decapitated have been contacted for comment.
