Girlfriend filmed her kidnapper partner and his gang torture victim


A girlfriend filmed her fiancé gang-rape and torture a kidnapped man during a ten-hour attack, a court has heard.

Awna Baszak filmed her partner Daniel Misiolek and his accomplice Kamil Lesiak subject their 27-year-old victim to a series of barbaric and degrading sex acts after kidnapping him in Bootle, Merseyside, in November 2015.

During the horrific attack, Misiolek and Lesiak forced their victim to perform sex acts, urinated on him and inserted objects into his body. 

Baszak, of Netherton, Merseyside, who filmed the attack on her phone for 90 minutes, was jailed for 12 years after being convicted of kidnap and two counts of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent in 2016. 

On Tuesday, the last member of the gang, Kamil Lesiak, was jailed for 18 years at Liverpool Crown Court after being found guilty of a string of offences that saw his victim subjected to horrific humiliation and self-degradation.

On November 28, 2015, the victim was approached by Misiolek, whose face is covered in tattoos including the words ‘thug life’, and hit with an aluminium baseball bat. 

He was then taken to Misiolek’s home in Netherton after being ordered into a taxi. 

Just days before, one of the kidnappers, Dagmara Szary had ‘appeared to have taken offence’ to mobile phone photos she claimed to have seen. 

At the house, the 27-year-old victim was repeatedly locked in a small storage cupboard, bound at the ankles and wrists and forced to carry out depraved sex acts on the men. 

A court heard how Misiolek walked the victim to the cupboard and told him: ‘You won’t get hurt but you will stay here until Monday and I will feed you once a day.’

He also punched the victim in the face and said: ‘This is your f***ing punishment.’

The gang also made the victim falsely confess to being a paedophile, a court heard. 

In 2016, three people were sentenced following a trial over the horrific attack.

Misiolek, from Netherton, was jailed for life after admitting kidnap, rape, false imprisonment, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, robbery, and six counts of causing a male to engage in sexual activity without consent.

Dagmara Szary, of Huyton was jailed for 15 months in a young offenders institution after being convicted of kidnap following a trial.

Following Lesiak’s sentencing, Detective Sergeant Jamie Dean said: ‘It is pleasing to see this highly disturbing case brought to a full conclusion, and Lesiak facing the consequences of his appalling violence and abuse in 2015.

‘Lesiak and Daniel Misiolek subjected their victim to this horrific ordeal, some of which was filmed by Awna Baszak on a mobile phone.

‘The courage the victim has shown during the first trial and in the years since have ensured that four people have now been brought to justice, and hopefully provided some comfort when coming to terms with what happened.

‘Rape is a very personal crime, which many victims, understandably, struggle to come to terms with and it can have a devastating effect for the rest of their lives. 

‘There is no doubt that this continues to have a profound impact on this victim.   

‘Hopefully his immense bravery will encourage other victims of sexual offences to come forward and have the confidence in us to do the right thing and support them throughout their ordeal.

‘I want to make it clear that if you report a sexual offence, we will investigate it thoroughly and provide you with the utmost support throughout.

‘We are here to treat you with compassion and respect, and will work tirelessly to put perpetrators before the courts.

‘Specialist police officers from our Unity team work side-by-side with a number of partners including Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs), who work with the victim from the moment the police make the referral through to the court case and beyond.’
