Dozens of reports of assaults, rapes at Swedish festivals

A 17-year-old has told of her ordeal after a mob of ‘foreign youths’ sexually assaulted dozens of females at a Swedish music festival.

At least 35 aged between 12 and 17 reported being attacked during the ‘Party in the Park’ festival in foreign youths, 250 miles from Stockholm in Sweden’s Varmland County on Friday and Saturday night.

Some of the alleged victims reported being ‘kissed and groped’ in scenes similar to the Cologne New Year attacks, in which dozens of women reported being assaulted.

One 17-year-old victim has waived her right to anonymity to describe how an attacker targeted her while she was watching music at the popular event.

Alexandra Larsson told MailOnline she was molested on Friday night having been looking forward to attending the festival for months.

She said: ‘Everything was okay at the beginning of the evening. But things got out of hand during the last concert with John de Sohn that started at midnight.

‘At first we were pushed right up against the stage by the massive crowd. Everyone around us behaved really badly and my friends told a couple of boys to quieten down.

‘They were then threatened by the boys who said “you will die, b***h”. But the verbal abuse was just beginning. It would become much worse.

‘We managed to walk away from those boys after a while and started watching the concert. That was when I felt the first touch against my bottom.

‘Then someone took the liberty of grabbing my butt really hard. I turned away and said to the group of boys behind us that this was not okay, but I did not know who had done it. After a while, I felt someone running his fingers between my legs touching my genitals. Luckily, I had jeans on me.’

After the harassment, she turned around and said to the group of young men standing next to her that they should stop what they were doing. But everyone around her claimed to be innocent.

About 20 000 visited the festival every day during the three-day festival which was free. The majority of the visitors were teenagers
