Once the agents entered the house, Mezalka came out of a bedroom on the second floor with his hands up, but then quickly returned to the bedroom and closed the door. Agents followed him into the bedroom, and upon entering, saw that he was in his underwear and witnessed him stab his computer with a samurai sword, obviously quite aware of what the raid was about.
