The group had stayed in the apartment in Ösmo following a party on the Saturday night. Early on Sunday morning, those in the flat were woken by screaming, Aftonbladet reports.
“My friend was a completely mess, she just cried and was hysterical,” said the flat’s owner. “One of the guys had raped her.”
“I heard her scream that she wanted him dead, but I never saw her do anything,” said another person who had stayed the night.
The 20-year-old was taken to the hospital for a checkup. The 21-year-old man who allegedly raped the woman also received treatment for an undisclosed wound. Both have been discharged.
“It is a very complicated matter,” said Lars Lundin, police spokesman. “We don’t want to go into how she tried to kill him.”
A 32-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were taken into custody for attacking the alleged rapist.
Police have all four in custody for questioning.
What happened that night is still unclear. Police have not commented due to the ongoing investigation.
