At a nature park in Gateshead, Newcastle Crown Court heard that a 14-year-old boy shouted “I’m gonna wet you” prior to stabbing Tomasz Oleszak, also 14, deep in the chest. The defendant, now 15 and unable to be identified legally, denies murder and attempting to cause grievous bodily harm to another boy whose coat was slashed when trouble erupted in October. He has already admitted having a blade. (Image Source: https://metro.co.uk)
According to Mark McKone KC, prosecuting, Tomasz Oleszak died after incurring injuries “consistent with having been caused by a bladed article”. The incident began when the defendant and his girlfriend ran into a larger group of around 10 youths in Whitehills Nature Park. The boy gave someone a “dirty look”, which caused someone from the larger group to say they would hit the defendant. (Image Source: https://metro.co.uk)
As Tomasz advanced, the defendant took out a knife and stabbed him above the heart, with a wound measuring 3.2in deep and 1.8in wide. One of the group of youths stated to police that they heard the suspect yell “I’m gonna wet you”, which is a slang phrase for “I’m gonna stab you”. The prosecutor declared that the phrase “I’m gonna wet you” is the language of someone wanting to stab someone, not of someone acting in self-defence. (Image Source: https://metro.co.uk)
