A 15-year old Czech girl is currently in custody for hacking off the fingers of her 10-year old friend with an axe last week in the name of Satan.
According to local police, Alena Skrivankova told Jitka Svehlova’s parents that they were going to a nearby ‘to play’, but on reaching there, she tied Svehlova to a tree and cut off her fingers with an axe she had hidden in her backpack.
The victim was able to break free during the attack and run home.
‘Somehow the younger girl managed to escape and her horrified parents called the police,’ a police spokesman said. ‘When officers arrived at the scene they found the older girl sitting on the ground with the axe in one hand and the severed fingers in the other.’
Skrivankova was taken away for psychiatric evaluation after apparently telling responding officers that she cut off the smaller girl’s fingers because she wanted to make a sacrifice to Satan. Svehlova is currently being treated in the hospital … and there is no word on whether her severed fingers can be reattached.
