A 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection with seven rapes in the Gothenburg, Lund and Bohuslän regions.


In several cases, the suspect is alleged to have attacked and raped elderly women both outdoors and in their homes.

The man, who comes from the village of Bovallstrand in western Sweden, has confessed to raping three of the women, Sveriges Radio reports.

Police arrested the suspect in Uddevalla on Tuesday. A custody hearing is scheduled to take place later this week.
