It started in Sandnes

“The man is from eastern Europe and needs an interpreter”, said Brigitte Budal Løvlund, a lawyer in the police, when she spoke to aftenbladet.no.

The man in his late 20s had apparently managed to break in to and steal a van adapted for handicapped use. He then proceeded to mow down four people outside the Saturn nightclub in Sandnes.

Lene Tesdal, the police lawyer on duty at the time of his arrest, told aftenbladet.no that the car’s owner had informed her that the man had stolen the keys without him noticing it.

Two people were hurt, and the thief denies driving whilst under the influence.
