Up to fifteen young boys have allegedly been sexually assaulted by a man in Västervik, who was charged in court last Wednesday, reported DN on Thursday.

The man has been a suspect for quite some time and has been charged for sexual assault and child pornography, according to DN. Some of the boys who were assaulted by him were only 13 years old.

A police investigation started early last summer and video cameras and other photographic equipment was found in the man's flat, which the police believed was used for filming child pornography.

The man's home had been a "hang-out for young kids, where they could get alcohol and access to computers", according to DN.
