Girls are asked by the police to be careful if they go out alone at night in the Norwegian county of Oppland.
Police in Oppland has received reports of dozens of cases of sexual harassment of young girls in Vestoppland, just this year, reports TV2.
- Every time two or more boys/men have been together during the assaults. All young and of foreign origin, says Bjørn Slåtsveen, leader of the forensics section in Vestoppland police, to Oppland Arbeiderblad.
Six of the cases that have been reported are under investigation. Three boys/men have been interrogated and are considered to be known perpetrators. Slåtsveen stresses that the police look at the cases very seriously.
- They are way out of line, and what they do is a criminal offense, he says.
An asylum seeker in his early 20s recur in three of the cases.
- He lives at an asylum reception center in Hedmark. We believe he is involved in three of seven cases, says Slåtsveen.
- It is about to develop into a tendency and a problem, and it is a big problem for the girls who are subjected to it. We have a suspicion that cases have occurred without having been reported too. We encourage anyone who experience such harassment to tell us, says Slåtsveen.
