Pedophile sexually abused boys, branded Satanic symbols on them in initiation ceremony at 'black magic' school
Convicted murderer and sex offender Sergei Pimenov allegedly forced minors to undergo violent initiation ceremonies involving lashings with sticks and hot wax
A so-called "black magician" has been accused of physically abusing young boys and branding them with Satanic symbols in his sorcery classes. According to The Sun, convicted murderer and sex offender Sergei Pimenov allegedly forced minors to undergo violent initiation ceremonies involving lashings with sticks and hot wax.
The 44-year-old was released from prison on parole last year before he began advertising magic lessons online. “I accept boys from 12 to 18 years old for free education in my magic school," one post read, per the British newspaper.
A 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, revealed how he went to Pimenov for "classes" and was subjected to a brutal "initiation rite."
The alleged victim said Pimenov took a stick and repeatedly lashed him on his chest and back in a forest "ritual" at Dolgoprudny near Moscow, Russia. "Then he [Pimenov] took a candle, lit it, and burned a star right on the wounds on my back," the teenager told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper. "I was so exhausted that I did not understand what was going on at all." The wounded boy was then sexually abused by the suspect, authorities believe. Another 15-year-old victim was allegedly struck 180 times with a stick on each side of his body before being subjected to similar sexual abuse, per the report.
The first boy reportedly recalled how the "sorcerer" initially seemed to cure his mother of illness and used spells to "return" his girlfriend to him. But then the "magician" proceeded to threaten him and his family and told the child he would "rape his sister" if he didn't cooperate. The boy also recalled being "ashamed and scared" after undergoing the initiation.
The victim finally mustered the courage to tell his stepfather about the sessions, before Pimenov was taken into custody on suspicion of sex offenses against underage boys. "Peminov threatened me, said that he would kill me and my whole family, and demanded money from me," the boy said. "It was scary, but I pulled myself together and told everything to my stepfather, and then to my mother."
Meanwhile, the Pravda reported: "The master of dark forces did not just molest children, he staged whole performances with hot wax and burning pentagrams on the bodies of his victims, claiming that this was necessary to obtain the Force."
Olga Vrady, an official of Russia’s Investigative Committee, said a criminal case has been launched against Pimenov for “violent acts of a sexual nature” against minors. According to the committee, a number of victims have been identified and a psychologist is currently working with the first reported victim.
Pimemov, on the other hand, has been remanded in custody for at least two months pending investigations into the allegations. Ravil Iskandarov, a lawyer representing the victims, said Pimenov is a “danger to society” and should receive a 20-year sentence. Meanwhile, lawyer Vladimir Vagner said, “Already signs of torture, blackmail, and threats to kill a minor are seen. The investigation is now in its initial stage and the collection of evidence is underway.”
Pimenov was previously jailed for the rape and murder of a 16-year-old boy in 2004, and was released on parole for "good behavior," according to The Sun.
