Dozens of reports of assaults, rapes at Swedish festivalsHELSINKI (AP) — Several dozen women reported being raped or sexually assaulted at two music festivals in Sweden last weekend, police said Tuesday.
After playing in Norrkoping, British rock band Mumford & Sons posted a note on their Facebook site saying they were "appalled ... and gutted by these reports" of rape and sexual assault.
Nystrom told The Associated Press that Karlstad police have identified the perpetrators at the event in Karlstad but that no one had yet been detained. He declined to give details of the suspects or comment on reports that the offenses were committed by migrants or foreigners, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Earlier this year, Swedish police faced allegations of a cover-up for failing to inform the public of widespread sexual assaults against teenage girls at a music festival a year ago, which came to light in January when the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter reported them following a string of sexual assaults and robberies on New Year's Eve in Cologne, Germany.
Apparently, young "foreign" men are attending rock festivals in Sweden, knowing that young Swedish girls and women will be there, and then sexually assaulting them.
The story references Swedish authorities even attempting to cover up previous cases of foreign men attacking Swedish women! There's your progressive politics in play; let women be sexually assaulted to protect the public image of foreigners!
