Accused rapist faces long sentence

“Some of the worst rapes I’ve ever seen,” police superintendant says.



The trial of a 23-year-old man from Drammen charged with raping three women on Østlandet over a period of six years begins today.

Police allege he attacked his first victim in Sandvika in January 2004, whilst the other two took place last year in Drammen, and say they have positive DNA evidence linking him to the crimes.

He has also been charged with causing bodily harm and aggravated robbery in connection with the rapes, and faces the maximum sentence of 21 years in jail because the Sandvika woman was seriously injured.

His victim was knocked to the ground whilst unlocking the outer gate to the block of flats where she lived and dragged into her apartment, where she was raped whilst unconscious.

At the time of last year’s rapes, police superintendant Thor Ingolf Johansen told NRK they were amongst the worst he’d ever experienced in Drammen.

The man has been in Ila jail since his arrest a few days subsequent to the last rape on 30 May 2009.
