Six men attacked a wheelchair-bound woman in a toilet and took turns to rape her. The woman, in her 30s, was said to have asked one of the men to allow her use their toilet. They attacked her while she was using the toilet and raped her. The incident took place at an asylum centre in Visby on Sweden’s Gotland island. The victim’s lawyer Staffan Freriksson said the abuse started in the toilet and several other men joined in.
The incident was caused anger in the town and police had to calm the people who were hurling stones at the centre. 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 accommodation.
