A sunbathing session in western Sweden took a sinister turn on Friday when a teenage girl in Lidköping attempted to strangle her cousin with a bikini top.

Two cousins, both 17-year-old girls, began fighting with each other on Friday in Lidköping in western Sweden.

One girl attempted to strangle the other by pulling her cousin's bikini top up around her neck and pulling it tight. She also reportedly bit and threatened to kill the other girl, according to Nya Lidköpings-Tidningen newspaper.

The girl was arrested for attempted murder, but was later transferred to a juvenile facility.
