A 19 year old was given a two month prison sentence and further probation for robbery and falsification of documents. Three 17 year olds were sentenced to youth detention of between two years and two and a half years.
The other two girls were given suspended sentences.
During the attacks the girls hid their faces behind veils. In one incident, a 71 year old woman was pushed down a staircase after three of the girls snatched her handbag.
Prosecutor Viktor Carlberg said that he was largely satisfied with the verdict.
"It was serious and repeated crime," he told Aftonbladet.
