After two rape attempts in Östersund this weekend, the police urged women not to go out late. They also issued a warning that “much like this” will happen this summer, Fria Tider reports.
Two similar rape attempts took place this weekend, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Police explained the same offender could be involved: A 175cm tall man, of about 25 years, dark haired and darkly dressed.
Police investigator Suss Braunerhielm said in an interview with P4 Jämtland: “This summer, more like this will happen, I think” she added that women “should be alert and preferably not go out late”.
That description is a little short of the critical detail; attacker was a recent Muslim refugee.
From a nation, thirty years ago, that had the lowest rate of forcible rape to the recent report that one out of four Swedish women can expect to be raped.
Enjoy the summer.
