In an atrocious incident ,three young men aged 18, 20 and 24, were recently suspected in Sweden for gang raping a woman and then live streaming the act on Facebook.
The suspects who were arrested in an apartment in Uppsala that is 70 kilometres north of Stockholm. They were arrested in the presence of their 30-year-old victim soon after some of the members of the Facebook group informed the police about the activity.
Out of the 60,000 members in the said group, Josefine Lundgren, 21 was the first one to call the police authorities.
She said, “the 24-year-old suspect, a repeat offender considered by police to be the main attacker, ‘tore the clothes off’ his victim before raping her. The attacker also had apparently filmed everything and took pictures that he put on (messaging site) Snapchat.”
Then, a press conference was arranged wherein investigators requested the social media users to hand over any images that they held to the police. “We have some picture and video material. But we don’t have any images showing the attack itself,” Uppsala deputy chief prosecutor Magnus Berggren said.
While the video has been taken down from Facebook, it has been already circulated around the internet. Chek the images of the suspects below. You can see one of them holding a gun
What a shame! That too in Sweden which is considered one of the safest countries in the world.
