The former Kangasvuori hospital has been turned into an accommodation center for asylum seekers. A large proportion of them have come to Finland from Iraq.
Outside the accommodation, an incident took place on Friday, when a four-man gang of asylum seekers attacked three Finns walking a big black dog, the Finnish newspaper Keskisuomalainen reports.
Exactly, it's not very smart.
Finnish Police Chief Inspector Timo Hänninen says that the police has recorded the incident which took place at Huhta 1. The time of the actual event is uncertain, but the police was called at nine o'clock in the evening.
According to the police report, the dog was attacked by these four people. In the situation the dog bit one of the persons in the back. The victim has back abrasions, Hänninen says.
The accommodation unit director Matti Hautala confirmed on Saturday that the incident occurred on Friday.
- The situation has been reported to the police, Hautala said.
A woman who work as a volunteer at the accommodation center overheard an unpleasant conversation on Friday evening.
- As I walked to my car, I heard a guard talking to the reception center of the phone. The guard called police officers to the scene. The security guard's conversation gave me the impression that someone had encouraged the dog to attack an asylum seeker, the woman says (which would be normal for any dog owner to do if someone attacked his dog).
Police are looking for eyewitnesses to the incident.
So far no arrests have been made.
