A 15-year-old girl is in police custody after taking a younger friend on what Gawker aptly called a “playdate from hell” last week, one that ended with the younger girl taking an axe to her fingers.
Alena Skrivankova told her 10-year-old friend Jitka Svehlova’s parents they were heading to the nearby woods “to play,” local Czech authorities said.
Once the pair were alone, Skrivankova tied her supposed friend to a tree and hacked her fingers off using an ax she had concealed in her backpack. Luckily, Svehlova managed to break free and return home.
Her parents, horrified, called the police. When they arrived to the scene of the crime, “they found the older girl sitting on the ground with the axe in one hand and the severed fingers in the other,” a police spokesman told the Mirror. “This is a deeply disturbing case.”
Most disturbingly of all, Skrivankova reportedly told the police she attacked her friend as part of a Satanic sacrifice. She was taken away for psychiatric assessment. Her victim is in the hospital recovering.
