Yet another incident happened on thursday 18th in the middle of the day. This deed ended to be only an attempt of the rape. Women was walking the dog, when again a unknown man assaulted her. Man punched her and tried to pull off womans clothes ”like a madman” as local newspaper NWT tells. Womans small dog started barking loudly and with that women was able to hit the man and was able to run away, as did the attacker.
Karlstad became known couple years a go when in winter 2016 a group just-arrived-migrants and gang of ”youths who came alone” roamed through the city and assaulted local youth (boys as well as girls) who ever came across.
