Strange how none of the articles mention that one of the victims was English, not even one of them.
What's so strange about it? No names are mentioned in the articles, as far as I've noticed.
And also strange how those articles are about five victims, while the original one is about four victims.
No, they aren't about five victims. Articles posted by ShortHairThug say that five people were partying
Four were stabbed, one of them died, one is in a critical condition.
So it's like in the article in The Yorkshire Evening Post: "He was one of four colleagues who were knifed
". And "One man, a Polish friend of 40-year-old Mr Johnson, died". Also, about the British guy: "David Johnson said it was "touch and go" whether he would survive." And there's this: "One person managed to get away" - I guess it was the fifth guy that wasn't knifed.
So it seems all of the above fits.
Could it be that there was more than one stabbing in the Warsaw region in the same week? I wonder.
Could be, but too many facts are the same in my opinion, tbh.
First the complaints about the noise, then the attackers come back and stab them.
Four men knifed, one of them dies, one is in a critical condition.
The things that don't match is bursting into a flat and that, according to the YEP article, three men were arrested and according to Polish articles four men were arrested, two of them suspected to be the attackers. Maybe simply the YEP didn't get everything right, it happens.
Especially the stuff about location.
Exactly. While one can call Praga many things, 'surrounded by a forest and overlooking a lake' isn't one of those things.
The article in the YEP doesn't say that the party took place at the British guy's house or flat.
Warszawski wrote on the previous page of this thread "Sounds like the English guy was attending a party and it was his colleagues flat."
And you've agreed with him, jon357: "This is exactly how it looks. I doubt he had a flat in the middle of a forest."
All in all, I may be wrong, of course, but it looks to me that it's the same event.
Somehow it's hard to believe they themselves are innocent in all of that and got their arse kicked just for the hell of it.
If you are looking for trouble you'll find it.
It's not hard to believe at all. There was a very publicised case some time ago when some thug started harassing a student girl, I think, and her boyfriend told him to stop it and the thug stabbed him to death in broad daylight, if I remember correctly. There was a march against violence after that in the city, I think. I don't remember where it was, Poznań maybe? There are deranged thugs that can kill you for no reason. And I've noticed there have been more kife attacks in Poland since some time then there used to be.
