A man was raped near a metro station in southern Stockholm in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The man, who is 19-years-old, was on his way home from Skärmarbrink metro station at 4am on Sunday morning when he was attacked and raped at knife point by an unknown assailant.

"It has occurred outside. It has occurred at knife point. We have a vague description, but the victim is in shock and has not yet been capable of a thorough interview," said Hans Wiksten at Stockholm police on Sunday morning.

After the attack the man was taken into the care of South Stockholm General Hospital's rape unit.
