Man, 21, stabs computer with samurai sword ‘to destroy child pornography’ as FBI raids his bedroom
A 21-year-old man tried to destroy his child pornography stash by stabbing his computer with a Samurai sword after FBI agents burst into his home.
The home of Kamil Mezalka, 21, was stormed by officers on Tuesday to seize his machine after an undercover agent downloaded horrific images and videos from the man’s computer via a file sharing service.
Mezalka was said to have come out of a second-floor bedroom and then quickly shut to door at the house in Palm Coast, Florida when he saw the men brandishing a warrant.
When the FBI demanded he come out and he refused to do so, agents burst into the bedroom where he was ‘standing in his underwear, holding a two-handed samurai sword which he had stabbed into the side of a desktop computer’, according to agent Jonathan MacDonald.
When the 21-year-old began to swing the sword towards the screen, he was pinned to the floor by agents.
Mezalka has swords on his bedroom wall and is pictured on Facebook in military outfits holding knives and guns.
During an interview with FBI agents, Mezalka admitted ‘having a file sharing program on his computer which he used to download pornography to include child pornography’, according to The Smoking Gun.
The 21-year-old also told authorities he ‘was attracted to girls aged 13 to 18′ but it was possible he had images of younger children.
An FBI computer expert found hundreds of pornographic images of children on Mezalka’s desktop computer.
He was charged with possessing child porn and is due to appear before U.S. District Court in Jacksonville tomorrow.
