A north African migrant who participated in the brutal gang rape of a Swedish woman in Stockholm earlier this year has been set free because he has no identification documents to prove he is over the age of 15.
The incident took place back in September on the island of Södermalm. After first pretending to console the young woman, who was crying, the gang then took her to a viewpoint overlooking the city before one of them, “gripped her neck, ripped her clothes off and raped her,” reports The Local.
Other boys then arrived and proceeded to take turns raping and beating the woman before she managed to escape and board a night bus at 3am. Two of the boys, who were all aged 15 to 18, were sentenced to six months in juvenile detention while another received nine months.
However, one of the culprits got off completely scot free on appeal because he didn’t have any identification documents to prove that he was over the age of 15 when the incident took place.
