Three men arrested after live-streamed gang rape of Swedish woman Watch

    Two men have been detained on suspicion of raping a woman in Sweden and livestreaming the harrowing attack on Facebook while a third was held on suspicion of failing to report the rape.

    A 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old man, who , were arrested in the city at the weekend after police were tipped off by social media users.

    A 24-year-old Swedish man has also been detained on suspicion of failing to report the rape.

    According to The Local, the men have denied the allegations. Christer Söderberg, a lawyer representing the 20-year-old, said: "A woman is said to have been raped in an apartment. He is suspected of that. He denies any criminal offence, he has given in my opinion a perfectly coherent story about what happened. I cannot go into details, but he has told me in a way that is not contradicted by anything else."

    Andreas Welin, the lawyer for the 24-year-old accused of failing to report the case, added: "I have seen stronger evidence in my days."

    The three suspects have not been charged. According to Swedish law they cannot be identified but can be held without charges if there is a risk they may flee.

    Earlier this week investigators appealed to social media users who had witnessed the attack to turn over any images from the assault to the police.

    Uppsala deputy chief prosecutor Magnus Berggren said: "We have some picture and video material. But we don't have any images showing the attack itself. "

    One witness, who unwittingly watched the incident, described their horror at seeing the attack on the woman on the social media site. "At first I thought it was a poorly orchestrated joke. The first thing you think is: 'How can you do such a thing to a girl? And how can you do it live?' It is totally sick."

    The film has been removed from Facebook but has been circulated on the internet Mail Online reports. The 30-year-old victim has been receiving treatment in hospital.

    Btw, due to laws in Sweden, the original article which this is based on is written in a way that seeks not to apply judgement on whether the rape occured or not, but the rape definitely did occur, as its live audience can attest to.

    Did they really think they'd get away with it? :eyeball:

    I don't see why that makes it more news worthy. Rape is rape, nothing else

    Murder is murder, nothing else. So, if a black man is killed be a KKK member, that is the same as if a black man is killed by another black man.

    Murder is murder, nothing else. So if the president of the US is killed by a Hillary supporter, that is the same as if a homeless man is killed by another homeless man.

    It's different if there is a special motivation such as the victim being in a high position or being attacked for a racial or sexist motivation. But the crime being filmed or live streamed doesn't make it any more significant or newsworthy in my opinion.

    Afghan migrants..

    Poor Swedish women

    Weak cucked White males, unwilling to defend their race


    Instead calling these people "minorities" that somehow is associated with victimhood. Well they're not a minority in Afghanistan are they?

    I understand that you have an agenda of making crimes committed by apparent immigrants as unexceptional as possible, and trying to make this appear perfectly normal is part of that. However, sometimes that can make you look foolish when the incident really is newsworthy..

    This incident is unusual (and newsworthy) because, if it is a crime (a) the perpetrators outed themselves by live-streaming the incident, (b) they deny it despite the video evidence and, presumably, corroboration from the victim that the sex was non-consensual (further confirming their stupidity) and (c) it adds to the exceptionally high proportion of sex crime committed in Sweden by immigrants (which is a hot topic).

    I don't know what you're on about with the "agenda" but I'll ignore that. The fact is that it's not really newsworthy when rape is such a common crime- live streaming it adds nothing to the crime. And we have no evidence as to whether the crime was committed by immigrants or not- we don't know the identities of the attackers.

    On the contrary, it is the live-streaming that makes it extra-newsworthy. How many such self-televised rapes have there been? I have never heard of one before.

    In any case, all crime is newsworthy. Have you never read you local newspaper? The more sensational and serious, the further afield it will be newsworthy.

    No point arguing with them, since the perpetrators were brown, they see them as immigrants, whether or not they are citizens. They could be tenth generation christian immigrants from Syria, and they'd still refuse to call them Swedish citizens.

    Aren't most rapes in Sweden committed by Muslim immigrants?

    I have the identities of the attackers since they did stream it. Their Facebook profiles say they are Armenian two of whom have the same surname, possibly brothers which would explain the age differences among the group.
