A man was seriously assaulted by a gang of youths in Umeå on Friday night.

The man, who has not been named, noticed the youths urinating on his fence in a terrace housing area in the Ersboda neighborhood, and went outside to tell them to stop. He was then set upon by the gang of six to eight youths and viciously assaulted.

The man was kicked, and beaten with weapons including sticks and a shovel. He suffered serious head injuries and a broken arm, and remains in intensive care.

“We are working to collect witness information. We still do not have any reasonable suspects, but we are following certain lines of inquiry,” said Kenneth Jonsson, Västerbotten police's officer in command.
