On May 5-6 in Bromma, northwestern Stockholm, 4 Eritreans , aged between 17 – 20 raped a young mentally disordered woman.. The rape is regarded as a gross violation by the prosecution, partly because it was carried out jointly by the four Eritreans and partly due to the woman’s “developmental disorder”.
