A well-known and popular hairdresser turned out to be a "ruthless woman-abuser" after DNA samples from two victims proved he had raped them three years ago.

According to Wednesday's Expressen three men were accused of gang raping a 45-year-old woman in Småland in September 2001. They were never caught but DNA samples were saved and stored for future reference.

Recently a 20-year-old girl called the police to report a rape and when the police arrived the man was still on the premises and was arrested. The DNA samples linked him to both assaults.
