Recently, a number of violent crimes have been reported in Østersund. Since February 20, six complaints of violence against women have been reported to the police.
Last weekend, a woman was subjected to beatings - and another woman reported an attempted rape by three unknown men who attacked her.
Police in Østersund held a press conference and told about the reports they have received. Among them is a case of molestation of ten-year-old girls at a bus stop in Østersund.
There are also two other cases of ill-treatment of single women. One of the cases took place on February 26 and the police have a suspect who fled the country to Germany. The person was arrested, according to police, thanks to signalement and is now in custody, according to Swedish Television.
The hope is that more offenders can be found, but in the other cases there are no suspects and police appeal for tips from the public.
Police also issued a warning - especially aimed at women in Østersund.
The warning: Do not go out alone at night.
- It is alarming and we advise caution, says Stephen Jerand, from the police in Jämtland, at a press conference, according to Östersunds-Posten.
Jerand believes that what is seen now is a trend, and that the real number could be large.
- That this is happening in such a short time in Østersund is very unusual.
Jerand promises that the police will take several steps. Among other things, continue to advise the public to alert the police if they have seen something.
It's the new Sweden, and it's about to get a lot worse.
