Residents of Steningehöjden, a suburb of Stockholm, have received threatening notes from Deash (IS) in their mailboxes, writes the local newspaper, Märsta.nu.
- We called the police who came and took the notes, says one of the residents to märsta.nu
Residents in the apartment buildings and villas at Steningehöjden were met with a message from Daesh / Islamic state on Thursday night, writes the paper.
Märsta.nu have sought police for information, but according to the police, no such event has been reported.
- We gave the police three notes and they searched around the area with dogs, says one of the residents who contacted märsta.nu
Another person stated that also residents of the villa area received notes in the mailboxes and that police officers were circulating the area at midnight and at 1 o'clock.
The message on the notes begins with a threat followed by another.
"In 3 days you infidels will be decapitated in your own homes and we will bomb your rotting corpses."
Then the notes say convert to Islam, pay taxes or die.
Similar notes have been seen around other places in Sweden. It has not been proven to come from the "right" ISIS, but can be from people who sympathise with IS, or even from a white supremacist movement to spread fear that ISIS is present in the area.
One should take it seriously
Another resident says that he came home at 22 o'clock and saw the note, he then contacted the police, who came and seized the note.
- I went to a friend who thought it was a joke, then he checked his mailbox as well and found a note. I do not know if it's a joke or for real. It could be serious. One should take these things seriously.

Sigtuna municipality confirms that notes have been sent to inhabitants of the municipality. According to the municipality's press officer Anna Jernberg Karlsson, a police investigation, involving the Swedish Security Service, has started.
