A wheelchair-bound woman was gang-raped by up to six migrants at a
Swedish asylum centre after asking if she could use their toilet.
The woman, in her 30s, was sharing a taxi home with a man when she asked
to stop off so she can ease herself. Her fellow passenger invited her
inside the asylum only for her to be brutally set upon in the toilet.
The assault sparked anger in the town and extra police were called to the island when an angry mob
attacked the asylum centre with rocks.
The victim’s lawyer Staffan Freriksson, according to MailOnline, said
the abuse started in the toilet and several other men joined in. He
‘Where they came from we don’t know. This was going on for a couple of
hours. She got paralysed in this situation and was not able to bring
herself to resist physically, other than saying no.’
He said his client is unable to walk long distances and needs a wheelchair. She was eventually able to escape the building.
Six men aged in their 20s were arrested in the days that followed they were later released.
Sweden’s Expressen newspaper reported that the suspects were all asylum
seekers and that the attack allegedly took place at asylum
Large crowds gathered in protest and marched in the town.
