Malmö Police advised women to stay inside after dark following string of rapes
Another woman has been attacked and gang raped by several men in the Swedish city of Malmö.
The rape occurred on Thursday night and police were alerted by the victim at 1 am, early Friday morning. Police say the rape was classified as a “gross crime” and that the assault followed the same pattern as the previous gang rape.
According to Malmö police president Nils Norling, a report was registered of a “serious rape”, of a victim over 18-years-old.
Police have searched an area in Högaholm with a special dog for semen. The victim was taken to hospital but had no severe injuries.
This is the fourth gang rape in Malmö in less than two months. Media say the first three victims were teenage girls:
The first rape took place on November 4: A girl was raped by several men after a party in Segevång, northern Malmö
Over a week later, a girl was gang raped at a bus stop in Södervärn, central Malmö.
In mid-December, a 17-year-old girl was beaten and raped by several men at a playground in Sofielund in central Malmö.
