Cute Swede pulled over by ‘policeman’ for a date

A Swedish woman who was pulled over for driving too fast but managed to walk away without a ticket, was shocked to find this was not the last she would hear from the amorous “policeman” that night.

Cute Swede pulled over by 'policeman' for a date

Angelica, 26, confessed to newspaper Aftonbladet that she may have been driving too fast in Sigtuna, central Sweden, on Monday night when she was pulled over by what she thought was an undercover police car with flashing blue lights.

The man in the car told her she was driving too fast, but he told her they could skip the formalities and that she could drive on, wrote Aftonbladet.

However, this exchange didn’t seem to satisfy the infatuated inspector, who proceeded to follow the woman and pull her over again several minutes later, this time asking for her phone number “just in case something happened”, according to the paper.

The woman obliged, and was bewildered to receive a text after midnight from the passionate patrolman:

“Hello, I want to meet you in Upplands-Väsby tomorrow, what time suits you? Just so we can talk a little. And you can get a free coffee,” said the text, according to the paper.

“You got to keep your driving license and you got away without a fine. You were so cute in your blue jeans 😉 Can you be in Väsby around 5pm if that works?” it continued.

”I didn’t know what to believe, I thought it was completely sick,” the woman told the paper, adding that she rang the man later, confirmed that he claimed to be a policeman, then told him that she would report him.

The man allegedly had no equipment, badge, or uniform to indicate he worked for the law enforcement.

The local police were left scratching their heads at the matter.

Mats Johnsson, the officer leading the investigation, claims the police are taking the matter seriously, and cannot yet say if the covetous cop was indeed an official officer.

“This is not good, whether it was actually a policeman or not,” he told Aftonbladet.

“It would be ludicrous if it turned out to be a colleague, but you just never know,” he said.

Meanwhile, the woman, who claims to have lost faith in the police, has begun to avoid the roads where the incident occurred, fearing another meeting with the man, reports the paper.

According to Aftonbladet , the “policeman” has since stopped answering his phone.

Calls for special police tactics to be available across Sweden

The chairwoman of the Police Association West Region has said that police special tactics, known as Särskild polistaktik or SPT, should be available across Sweden, to use in demonstrations similar to those during the Easter weekend.

Calls for special police tactics to be available across Sweden

SPT, (Särskild polistaktik), is a tactic where the police work with communication rather than physical measures to reduce the risk of conflicts during events like demonstrations.

Tactics include knowledge about how social movements function and how crowds act, as well as understanding how individuals and groups act in a given situation. Police may attempt to engage in collaboration and trust building, which they are specially trained to do.

Katharina von Sydow, chairwoman of the Police Association West Region, told Swedish Radio P4 West that the concept should exist throughout the country.

“We have nothing to defend ourselves within 10 to 15 metres. We need tools to stop this type of violent riot without doing too much damage,” she said.

SPT is used in the West region, the South region and in Stockholm, which doesn’t cover all the places where the Easter weekend riots took place.

In the wake of the riots, police unions and the police’s chief safety representative had a meeting with the National Police Chief, Anders Tornberg, and demanded an evaluation of the police’s work. Katharina von Sydow now hopes that the tactics will be introduced everywhere.

“This concept must exist throughout the country”, she said.

During the Easter weekend around 200 people were involved in riots after a planned demonstration by anti-Muslim Danish politician Rasmus Paludan and his party Stram Kurs (Hard Line), that included the burning of the Muslim holy book, the Koran.

Police revealed on Friday that at least 104 officers were injured in counter-demonstrations that they say were hijacked by criminal gangs intent on targeting the police. 

Forty people were arrested and police are continuing to investigate the violent riots for which they admitted they were unprepared. 

Paludan’s application for another demonstration this weekend was rejected by police.

In Norway on Saturday, police used tear gas against several people during a Koran-burning demonstration after hundreds of counter-demonstrators clashed with police in the town of Sandefjord.
