This is the homeless man who thugs treated as a slave, tortured, beaten and shot with an air rifle and during two months of “hell.”
The victim, identified as 46-year-old Mr Wojciech, managed to escape in February 2017 following two months of “hell”.
He told local media: “I survived the living hell when they cut me again and then sent me out to get beer. I walked to a petrol station and asked the saleswoman to call an ambulance.”

Reports said that Wojciech was admitted to hospital with 18 wounds over his body that were the results of air rifle shots and knife cuts.
Court official Izabela Piastowska said: “The accused did not treat the victim like a person, but instead as an object. He suffered numerous injuries at different times.”
Prosecutors said: “During this time, the perpetrators threatened, abused and beat him, hurting with sharp objects and shooting him with an air rifle.
“In exchange for accommodation, Mr. Wojciech helped with the property’s renovation and did small tasks for the benefit of the accused.”
Two men, identified as 25-year-old Mateusz Ch. And 42-year-old Artur M., abused the homeless man in the town of Starogard Gdanski in the northern Polish region of Pomeranian Voivodeship.
The pair have been jailed for four and a half years for torturing a homeless man for over two months by repeatedly beating him with a baseball bat and shooting him with an air rifle.
Mateusz Ch. and Artur M. were detained at the beginning of October 2017 and a search was carried out in one of their flats.
Officers found several firearms, machetes, hunting knives and baseball bats.
Cops also seized over 170 grammes of illegal substances, including amphetamines and marijuana.
The defendants claimed that they treated the homeless man well and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
However, the court sentenced the defendants to four and a half years in prison and told them to pay the victim 5,000 PLN (1,000 GBP) each in compensation.
