Gang kidnapped man before torturing and raping him during 10-hour attack

A violent thug who kidnapped, tortured and forced another man to carry out depraved sex acts during a ‘horrific’ 10-hour ordeal has been jailed.

Kamil Lesiak, 25, was locked up for 18 years after being convicted of a string of offences including false imprisonment and rape over the ‘appalling’ incident in Merseyside in November 2015.

The 27-year-old victim was initially attacked at a house in Bootle before being bundled into a taxi and driven to the home of accomplice Daniel Misiolek in Netherton.

There, the pair forced the man to strip naked, repeatedly beat him, urinated on his face and made him carry out degrading sex acts on each of them as well as himself.

He was also tortured throughout the hours-long attack – part of which was filmed on a mobile phone – with the gang binding his wrists and ankles before forcing him to hop around with a knife held to his face.

The gang also made him falsely confess to being a paedophile.

Lesiak, of no fixed abode, was found guilty of false imprisonment, ABH, rape and causing a man to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent at Liverpool Crown Court.

Three others were sentenced over their involvement in the attack following a trial in 2016.

Misiolek, whose mugshot shows his heavily-tattooed face bearing the words ‘thug life’, was jailed for life after admitting kidnap, rape, false imprisonment, ABH, robbery and six counts of causing a male to engage in sexual activity without consent.

Awna Baszak, of Netherton, was jailed for 12 years after being convicted of kidnap and two counts of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent following a trial.

Dagmara Szary, of Huyton, was sentenced to 15 months in a young offender’s institution after being convicted of kidnap following a trial.

After Lesiak was sentenced, 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.
