Police hunt taxi rapist

An 18 year old woman was taken to Söder hospital's centre for abused women overnight after being raped in Bagarmossen, in the south of Stockholm. She was said to be in a state of shock.

According to the police, the suspected assailant is a taxi driver, but it is not clear whether the attack happened in the taxi or outside on the street.

Samples taken from the woman have been sent to the National Forensics Laboratory for analysis.

By Tuesday lunchtime nobody had been arrested for the rape.

Last Thursday another woman said that she had been raped in a taxi in Nacka during the night.
