Police hunt suspects in 'hanging boy' case.
09:14 CEST+02:00
The Norwegian boy who was discovered at the site at Haganäset in Charlottenberg in Värmland County in western Sweden, was too scared to talk about his ordeal when he was first saved, reports TT.

Fellow Norwegian Stig Engebretsen who discovered the 11-year-old when he was out looking for his own son on Friday evening, said he was shaking with fear when he was eventually freed.

“I think he was so scared that he could not even talk,” said Engebretsen.

He added that the boy eventually led him back to his relatives but explained little on the way about what had happened. When it was reported to the police he opened up further though the police will not reveal the full details of the discussion.

So far there have been no arrests as the search for the perpetrators continues.

We are working on certain leads, but besides that we will not comment any further,” said the Värmland county duty police officer Per-Arne Eriksson.

The boy's father told Norwegian newspaper VG that he was attacked by more than one person, who grabbed him from behind, thereby making it difficult for him to see anyone and give a full description.

Despite his ordeal the boy did not receive any serious physical injuries.
