Reward offered for info on woman's assault

The boys were kicking a dog that was tied up outside a shop in the Helsingborg city centre when the elderly woman intervened. The gang then turned on her.

She was punched in the face and fell to the ground. The boys then kicked her until she started bleeding.

The woman managed to make her way home where she was bedridden for days.

The assault happened on a Monday but was only reported to the police four days later by the woman's grandchild.

Now, a man has offered the 25,000 kronor reward to help police catch the culprits, the local Helsingborgs Dagblad newspaper reports.

Torsten Persson of the Helsingborg police has spoken to the anonymous donor.

"I have told him that if he wants to do this, that is perfectly fine. It will surely lead to some unreliable tips but we'll make assessments," Persson said.

Before the reward was announced, the police had not received any tips from the public.

According to Persson it is very unusual for members of the public to offer cash rewards.

"I have experienced it a few times, but usually it is relatives who are prepared to pay," he said.

For any information to the police the public is advised to call 114 14.

The problem is, though, that 'no-one saw anything'.

That is unless the reward money jogs their memory.

An old man in Gbg is suffering from the results of such a violent attack, and even here people saw very little, and even the boys who took part are being considered as having given false evidence at the trial-

Hpefully both the old man and the old lady will recover, ut they will both be scarred, both physically and mentally from the violence they underwent at the hand of moronic youth.

Unfortunately, even if and when they are caught, the judgement handed out will be based on 'pojkstreck'.

Ahhh! The wonderful benefits of die-versity and multiCULTuralism! Crimes like these are absolutely rampant in virtually every white country. They might as well start filing them all under anti-White terrorism. This situation, wherein all white countries and only white countries are targeted for massive third world immigration, is ONLY that way because someone WANTS it that way. And the anti-White terrorism against whites is just one small facet of their overall campaign of White Genocide.

This is very sad I hope they can catch the punks and the woman will recover quickly. But Sweden needs to toughen up their laws because I am sure the culprits will just get a slap on the hand and that is all. They should have to pay some sort of restitution to the woman and serve at least some community time for their actions. I don't know what the laws are for animal cruelty in Sweden are but they should have to serve some form of punishment for that as well. If these were my kids there would be hell to pay for their actions.

@ Cheshire Cat Grin: hey, Breivik batty-boy, unless you hard any hard evidence, keep your racist, pillow case hood-wearing white supremacist view to yourself, you pathetic impotent little runt.

Isn't it that time of the evening where you go look at a picture of 'insane anders' and stroke yourself?

@Cheshire Cat Grin You hit the nail right on the head! And yet every government agency in Sweden, from parliament to SFI schools, constantly tell us over and over how our lives are "enriched" by all this refugee takeover.

It enrages me that a story about some SD members drunken words gets a half dozen stories here, yet this story, an actual violent crime, is buried deep down the page!

Sweden needs more CCTV as in the UK. Gangs also need to be banned aswell as wearing any type of 'hoody' in public. Any antisocial behaviour should be wiped out, and the police now must start enforcing the law with a 'heavy hand'. Parents also must be more responsible by knowing the activities and whereabouts of their children at all times. This type of crime is unacceptable and we must make it clear to society that as such, anyone who commiting such a dispicable crime will be punished with the full extent of the law. Anything less and Sweden will regress into being a 'broken' Sweden like many other countries.
