Three of the victim have life-threatening injuries. Swedish Police have shot and arrested an Afghan Muslim invader in his 20’s after he attacked several people in the southern Swedish town of Vetlanda with an axe just before 3pm on Wednesday. Despite the man’s criminal record, the police stated that the attacks came as a “total surprise.”
RAIR Foundation The stabbings occurred in five separate locations which have been cordoned off, all within a few hundred meters of each other. The assailant’s motive remains “unclear”, however, police initially said they were treating the stabbings as a ‘suspected terrorist crime.’ Hours later, police announced they are investigating the attack as an “attempted murder with terrorist motives”.
Police have refused to answer media questions about the suspect’s citizenship. However, The Editor-in-Chief at Swedish news agency, Dagens Nyheter, is reporting the suspect was first registered in Sweden in 2018, and that he previously was convicted for a low-level drug offense.
According to the the suspect’s neighbor, he spoke very poor Swedish and no English. Another neighbor states that a woman used to regularly come to the man’s home to help him.
Swedish newsite, Samnytt, published a video of police shooting the suspect in Vetlanda. A police car with blue lights on can be seen in the clip as well as two police officers. The children filming shout “He has a gun!”. Then a shot is heard. The video was spread on Snapchat during the evening.
Right now, it is unclear exactly what happened and what the motive was, but police describe it as a single perpetrator (who) attacked and seriously injured several persons in central Vetlanda. A suspected perpetrator has been arrested. Against the background of what has emerged thus far in the police investigation, the prosecutor has initiated a preliminary investigation into a terrorist crime.
Minister of the Interior Mikael Damberg calls today’s events in Vetlanda “terrible.”
Several people are seriously injured. These are terrible events and my thoughts go to the victims and their relatives. Right now it is unclear exactly what happened and what the motive was. The police have arrested a suspected perpetrator and have initiated a special incident to handle the development of the incident and create security in Vetlanda
In virtually every instance of jihad attacks in Sweden, politicians & media hide the identity of the attackers. In rare instances when the identity of an attacked is leaked, the suspect is presented as possibly suffering from “mental health issues.”
Of course, bleeding heart leftists, as most Swedes are, are quick to blame yet another Muslim terror attack on “mental issues.”
