Prison sentence following laundry room rape of teen

A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to three years and nine months in prison for three separate sexual assaults, including the rape of a 14-year-old girl in his building's laundry room.

On one occasion, the man raped a 15-year-old girl after promising her free liquor if she came to his apartment in the Stockholm suburb of Täby.

A second victim, aged 14, came to the man’s apartment expecting to pick up alcohol and cigarettes that he had purchased on her behalf.

When she arrived, the man forced her into a bathroom in the building’s laundry room and raped her.

“I’m going to make sure you also make it to heaven,” the man said before the attack, according to the newspaper Aftonbladet.

The man was also sentenced for the attempted rape of another 14-year-old he had molested following a party.

The 20-year-old denies the charges.
