Swedish police were forced to run for their lives after being attacked by a mob of asylum seekers as they tried to relocate amid allegations a 10-year-old boy had been ‘raped repeatedly’ at a refugee centre.
Officers entered the centre in Västerås to save the young boy who had been reportedly attacked repeatedly by asylum seekers at the centre.
Initially, staff in the centre tried to remove the boy but were stopped by the mob. Instead the staff called police for backup.
One of the officers told the Vestmanlands Läns Tidning newspaper: ‘Even more people appeared behind us. I was mentally prepared to fight for my life. We were 10 police officers in a narrow corridor. And I hear someone yell that there is an emergency exit.’
The incident happened last Wednesday, before a 15-year-old asylum seeker in Sweden was accused of murdering a girl working in a refugee centre.
According to Russia Today, Police Union Director Lena Nitz said: ‘ Many of the problems we are now facing help to prove the point that Swedish police have long been underfunded and understaffed.’ ,” Police Union Director Lena Nitz, told TT news agency.
