A married couple has been arrested in Sörmland in central Sweden on suspicion of raping their children. The man is suspected of aggravated rape while his wife is suspected of aiding and abetting.

Both of the arrested parents deny the charges.

The children have previously spent time in foster homes while their parents were investigated for alleged assault against them.

According to Aftonbladet the children were allowed to return home, but their five-year-old daughter raised the suspicions of a psychologist, which has now led to new charges against the couple.
