Sword-Wielding Man Indicted On Federal Charges

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Palm Coast man accused of stabbing his computer with a samurai sword when agents went to search his home has been indicted on federal child pornography charges.

Federal authorities say 21-year-old Kamil Mezalka is charged with two counts of receiving child pornography over the Internet, one count of possession of child pornography, and one count of destruction of evidence. It’s not immediately known if he has an attorney.

The Orlando Sentinel reports investigators went to his home May 8 to execute a search warrant. They found him in his underwear and wielding a samurai sword, which he used to stab his computer.

The Daytona Beach News Journal reported earlier that Mezalka had defended his mother from his stepfather using a Samurai sword in April.
