Police Arrest Five Youths In the Middle of Raping Woman in Malmo Park
Police on patrol in the multicultural city of Malmo caught and arrested five youths, four of them minors, as the mob was raping a woman in a public park.
The police were out on patrol on Saturday evening at around 11 pm when they came across a group of five youths in the Kungsparken in central Malmo who appeared to be sexually abusing and raping a woman, in what has been termed as aggravated rape.
“The police were there on a routine patrol and then meet these people who are behaving in an abnormal way and then interrupted this crime,” police officer Sara Andersson told the newspaper Expressen.
Four of the youths were arrested at the scene and the fifth was caught and taken into custody a short time later.
“We will hear from the people concerned and are now conducting a series of technical analyses to go through the course of events,” local prosecutor Kristina Amilon said, while a lawyer for the fifth accused man stated he denied any wrongdoing.
Although the identities of the men involved in the alleged rape are unknown, gang rapes in Sweden, according to a 2018 report from Expressen, are largely carried out by men of migrant backgrounds.
The report claimed that of the 43 men they studied in cases from 2016 and 2017 connected to gang rapes, just one was born in Sweden to two parents also born in Sweden, while 32 were born abroad to foreign parents.
