A 19-year-old man has been detained for the suspected rape of at least five children between the ages of five and seven in central Sweden, crimes the man has partially confessed to, prosectors revealed on Tuesday.


“The case concerns both boys and girls and right now revolves around five children, but this may change. Right now, the investigation is in a delicate phase,” prosecutor Marcus Nyman told the local Nya Wermlands-Tidningen newspaper.

The 19-year-old is a resident of Örebro, central Sweden, and Nyman has confirmed that the suspected rapes occurred in both Örebro and Kristinehamn, some 70 kilometres to the east.

However, he refused to elaborate on how he came into contact with the alleged victims.

The 19-year-old suspect was detained by police last Wednesday and on Friday was remanded in custody on suspicion of child rape.

The crimes allegedly took place over the past two and a half years, and the incidents mark the first time the 19-year-old has been suspected of criminal activities.

However, the suspect does not deny the accusations

“The man has confessed partially to the crimes,” Nyman said.
