A large number of masked youths are burning tires and stopping cars in a residential area of Trollhättan.
Police have large resources in place to stop the riot, reports Expressen.
- It is disturbing to those who live in the area, says Magnus Nordqvist, assistant duty officer at the police in the Western Region.
Late Wednesday night, police got an alarm about unrest in the district Kronogården in Trollhättan.
- It's about 20-30 masked youths who are burning tires in a residential area. There is a lot of smoke there, says Magnus Nordqvist.
According to police in Trollhättan it could be up to 60 youths.
- 40 to 60 young people have been mobilized. They have thrown at least four large stones and large firecrackers at police cars, says Karl-Johan Främling, a Trollhättan police officer.
The immigrant youths have also tried to stop passing cars.
Several police patrols, and also a police helicopter have been deployed to the area, and it has been sealed off for traffic in or out.
At midnight, police reported that they are still working to handle the situation.
- We have a lot of resources on site and number one priority is to restore peace and quiet in the area, says Sanna Lagerqvist, deputy police spokeswoman in the Western Region.
Also during Tuesday evening and the night of Wednesday there was unrest in the same district. Then between 40-50 immigrant youths moved into the area and threw firecrackers and fired rockets at cars. Tires were burned too.
So far there have been no arrests: COULD BE THE PROBLEM, JAH?
