Two migrants, at least one of whom is from Afghanistan, have been charged in the rape of a 15-year-old girl in Stockholm, according to Swedish media.
The attack took place under the Central Bridge near Stockholm City Hall on September 2nd, when two foreign men brutally raped the young girl, also threatening to kill her, Fria Tider reports.
Both men require interpreters for dari, the most widely-spoken language in Afghanistan, and while one of the suspects has been identified as an Afghan national born in 2001, information about his alleged accomplice is still being determined, pending a bone inspection by the National Board of Medicine.
Prosecutors are seeking conviction for gross rape, stating in their lawsuit: "Offenses should be judged as rough with respect to NN's low age (15 years) and since more than one person has abused the victim."
The scene of the assault is described by prosecutors as a "deserted, urban site, surrounded by water and characterized by concrete and traffic routes, from which the plaintiff could not escape," adding that the girl "hyperventilated, cried and shook," as the suspects threatened to kill or injure her.
The plaintiffs reportedly admit to certain details of the charges, but deny committing any crime.
Prosecutors are seeking permanent expulsion of both men from Sweden.
A 30-year-old Libyan migrant was arrested in the rape of a 10-year-old girl in Malmö, Sweden, last week.
Formerly virtually nonexistent in Sweden, gang rapes have risen steadily in recent decades, with the perpetrators often being men with migration backgrounds.
Roughly 85% of recent gang rapes or group sex assaults involved attackers with “foreign origins,” according to a 2017 report — figures that were later effectively corroborated by Swedish mainstream press, which is generally reluctant to discuss the connection between uncontrolled immigration and crime.
