A female cyclist in central Sweden was assaulted on Sunday night by two men, one of whom left bite marks on her left arm.

The 18-year-old woman was riding along a bike path in Motala in central Sweden when she was attacked at 2am on Sunday night by two men in dark clothes, reported MVT newspaper.

“One of them bit her on her lower left arm and they also pulled her hair. She had clear bite marks on her arm,” Christer Pettersson of the Motala police told TT news agency.

The woman went into shock and has foggy recollections of what happened next, although she didn't recognize either of her assailants.

Authorities don't consider the attack to be an attempted rape.

“Nothing indicates (it was attempted rape), and we are looking at it as an assault,” Pettersson said.
