Swedish cops are on the look-out for a quintet of tattooed girls who dragged a 50-year-old man off his bicycle, pulled down his trousers and smalls and "sexually molested" the poor bloke. The incident happened on 8 July in Örebro, central Sweden, the Aftonbladet newspaper reports. One of the gang - described as 5' 7" tall and …
Do they have IT jobs in Sweden?
Fixed the IT angle for you.
......please let this happen to me!!!!!!! Right now or when I'm fifty. I'm not fussy and I'll not call the old bill.
In fact I wonder how many times this has happened and NOT been reported.
There has to be some blokes with smiles on their faces who know more.......
The Warning will not stop the Trolls.
Right i'm off to by myself a bike for a tour round europe if your not molested in Sweden you can get money off in Germany.
can i be the first to say that i for one will be willing to act as a guinnea pig for the swedish police. maybe its an incentive scheme to get people riding bikes? i might bike to work if i know that i will be molested by 4 women on the way in... :)
"Perhaps there are others who’ve had the same thing happen to them."
Or perhaps those who spend their days dreaming of this happening to them... *sigh*
Oh the perks to be had in Sweden
I can see this town becoming a big hit with male tourists - Amsterdam, beware.
Cynicism: is this just a cunning ploy by their tourism board?
I welcome our sexually enraged female overlords. "Ooh, ooh! Slave volunteer over here, ladies!"
Did they have cold hands?
The local plod also made the comment that they were not aware of the chap being filmed. I wonder why they felt a need to say that?
Only one thing I can say to that....
Warning, no IT angle
Get rid of that! Stop publishing the comments of people complaining about the IT angle either, I'd rather see a non IT article rather than no article at all, some of them I don't have any interest in reading.. so I don't, and I don't comment that I didn't want to read it either.
Wouldn't want to be on the end of the stink-eye from the male townsfolk for fingering the suspects for that incident!
This is poor reporting; where's the mention of the location?
I have a free weekend coming up and a little trip with my bicycle in that part of the town could turn out right grand!
Mines the one with the chrome plated bicycle clips in the pocket.
happened on Monday, Tuesday and twice on Wednesday
Quintet = 5
Quartet = 4
Attack of the...
I'm already over fifty. What's "yes please" in Swedish?
Why did he go to the police?
Because he couldn't find his way back to the place where he was "attacked" and needed directions, maybe?
The real question
is of course: were they hot?
Have to go now, there are some inner tubes to inflate.
LMAO...you beat to it you b*stard :0)
Re: Warning, no IT angle
>fingering the suspects
Look, we all know, OK? Anyone who simply cannot resist is getting booted off the internet forever. Alternatively I may decide to make an example of you by letting through your sniggerings of screaming obviousness and exhorting all others to pie you. And not in the good way.
I wonder if they will do a Police re-enactment? Keep 'em Peeled!
Open Your Eyes
This is Green propaganda! A disgracful attempt to get more men out of their cars and on their bikes.
What I'm wondering....
...is whether they'll recreate this on Crimewatch?
"grabbed his bike's rack"
So what's that Swedish slang for?
a playmobile re-enactment
yeah yeah getting it now
Could I become....
an undercover dick?
This may just be the incentive I needed to go and oil the jolly old velocipede this weekend and take it out. I'm not in Sweden, but there's always the danger of copycat attacks to take into consideration.
The tweed one with the leather elbow patches and the grey wig and bicycle clips in the pockets please.
PS: Apart from the bicycle, were any of the other participants equipped with a nice rack?
If it had been filmed on phone cameras
Would it make this a happy-fwapping?
Where's the playmobil reconstruction?
Get off your bike.
Re : Sarah Bee
Sarah are you trying to raise the tone of the comments?
How long have you been with El Reg?
In this country, it's usually the victims who are trying to beat off the attackers...
Surely an IT angle
How often has Google Maps rendered the location of Orebro today?
Would it help if I were riding a bicycle at the time?
This heinous breach of order
cries out for Playmobil. With a 6' photographer and coppers and the Tour de France, as long as I'm wishing.
@ Blue Eyed Boy
"Ja tak" if I remember the getting distant past correctly. Pronunciation more or less "Ya tack".
And don't forget "Tak var" afterwards.
Erm, is it me?
If we flip the genders does this turn into a serious assault with a lifetime on the Sex Offenders Register?
On the other hand; pass my coat and where did I put my passport?
@Dork Lard: Why did he go to the police?
It was the closest place.
He then bragged in 3 stores, 2 homes, and a church. Word is, he's still telling folk, one building at a time.
Riding his bike the whole way.
Why is this not a serious assault?
If a lady was assaulted in a similar manner there would be a major investigation and it would be treated very seriously but as it's a man being assaulted by multiple women that seems less serious?
That said, I don't think I'd report it either, and probably make sure I use the same route on my bike every day....
I think the correct terminology is "gang rape", perhaps that only applys when men do it.
@The real question
We only have hot blondes in Sweden, didn't you know that? They are all over us...
RE: Why did he go to the police?
Or maybe they didnt finish what they started?
Fingering the suspects? I think that's what they're accused of doing to the victim.
Swedish lessons please ASAP
No! Don't! Stop!
No Don't! Stop!
NO DON'T STOP!
I have commuted by bike to/from work twice this week and I would do it much more often if I was at risk of this. I might even take the long way home.
(Sort of reminds me of a joke I think I saw on El Reg earlier this week: Two nuns on a bicycle: "I don't come this way much.")
I want to...
...ride my bi-SEE-kal, I want to ride my biiiike....
It's a fair cop, guv.
Its been reported that the Swedish dicks are hard-on the heels of the perps. Anyone confirm?
re. Crime Watch
"I wonder if they will do a Police re-enactment?"
I think I may have seen something similar already [web address withheld]...
Did any of them look like Paris?
Israeli chewing gum
Sounds like someone in Gaza strip is already exporting the latest Isrealian weapon to Sweden...
EVERYBODY PIE SCOTTBOY.
Can I remember all Dara O'Briain's comments
Let's see - they're going to dress up a copper as a cyclist - the girls will be surprised when they see the policeman's helmet, and even more surprised by the police chopper circling around. Of course, calling the station for advice and back up will be met with the comment "Roger and out", and of course everyone will want to examine the entire body of evidence.
Alas, I've been a keen cyclist for over a decade, with many thousands of molestation free miles under my belt
Mines the one with "Banned" on the back...
re Sarah Bee
can't throw pie.
I bet it was Amy Winehouse and crew.
