Violent Video Game Pair Caught Trying Real Life Murder

Violent Video Game Pair Caught Trying Real Life Murder

Two macabre teenage boys who tried killing a pensioner to see how a murder in real life compared to a video game have been locked up in a secure mental institute.

Maciej Wysocki, 17, and pal Nadzieje Jaworski, 16, from Radom, a city in south-eastern Poland, went to the home of Mariana Czarnecka, 82, where they attacked with knives and a bat.

"Die you hag, die!" they screamed as they beat the terrified woman in her own living room.

Police spokesman Alicja Sledziona said: "They went there to rob the old lady, and to see if she would die in the same way as in a video game."

Speaking to local media, terrified Mariana said: "They seemed so nice when they knocked on the door. But then they knocked me to the floor and then one of them tried to strangle me with a piece of rope.

"I have never done any harm to them, I did not know them. They got me down on the floor and were hurling insults at me. The shouting was terrible but it saved my life because a neighbour heard the sound of screaming and furniture being turned over and came to my rescue in the nick of time.

"I have got bruises and rope burns and a stab wound on my shoulder but I will survive."

Police said the duo were obsessed with violent videos and wanted to act out their fantasy for the past year. Both are undergoing psychiatric evaluation and are expected to be held in a secure mental hospital for years to come.
