Man arrested over knife death

A 20-year-old man was found dead early on Saturday morning in an apartment outside Hagfors, 100 kilometres north of Karlstad.

A man in his 50s has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

Police were called to investigate a knife attack in the apartment and when an ambulance arrived at the scene the younger man was found dead.

“The two men know each other but were not related,” said Karlstad police spokesman Thore Persson.

“The incident is being treated as manslaughter for the time being, but we don’t yet know much about the circumstances,” he added.
