Three women reported being raped on Wednesday night and early Thursday morning in the greater Stockholm area.

Two women were raped in the Hässelby area, while in Saltsjö Boo, a 15-year-old girl was attacked.

A 25-year-old was attacked by four unknown men near Hässelby Gård subway station. The men disappeared after the attack, and the woman was taken to the hospital.

In the second case, a 45-year-old woman was raped by a man, but escaped by jumping out of a window and running away.

Early on Thursday morning, the girl was raped, but after slipping away and running 200 meters, the man caught up to her and raped her again.

Police combed the area with dogs searching for clues. Nobody has been detained.
