A drug-taking flasher is set to face a six kronor ($1) fine if found guilty by the local district court of stealing a carton of milk, Borås Tidning reports.

If convicted, the man will be expected to reimburse Willys supermarket in Kinna, 60 kilometres east of Gothenburg, for the stolen dairy product.

The 23-year-old suspect, from Mark in western Sweden, was indicted on a string of charges following a day of concentrated criminal activity last summer.

The day began with the alleged theft of a carton of milk.

Having met his calcium needs, the man proceeded to punch a woman in the shoulder on Örbyvägen before threatening to take her life.

Moving on to Torkelsgatan, he then exposed himself to two people.

It was not long until police made an arrest, but not before the suspect attempted to bite an officer on the hand.

Police said that the 23-year-old, who was under the influence of amphetamines at the time, has admitted to some of the offences.

The ‘fairytale' boarding school nestled in a Swedish village

The words ‘boarding' and ‘school' often summon images of strict teachers, drab dormitories and downcast children. That image couldn't be further from reality at Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket (SSHL), where boarders describe the ‘fairytale' school as a home away from home.
