A brutally beaten teen is in the hospital
The District Prosecutor in Szczytno, Artur Bekulard, said, even before the charges were brought, that the beating was very brutal. For the sake of the victim, he did not want to talk about details.
“The girl suffered massive, extensive craniofacial injuries and was transported to the hospital,” he said. Bekulard emphasized that the modus operandi was shocking. – Brutal beatings happen between men, in pathological environments, but here we are dealing with young people from normal environments. The man is a student. It is rare for a boy to beat a girl so brutally. After his detention, the biological material was secured for toxicological tests in terms of psychoactive substances, the prosecutor said.
