Police in Rogaland say they have indicted and detained a man accused of sexually assaulting several elderly people.



The 49-year old was arrested at the end of last month, and has been remanded in custody for a period of four weeks on suspicion of having carried out the attacks in a number of places in the district.

Stavanger Aftenblad reports police are not releasing many details, but it is believed the man’s victims were both men and women in nursing homes between the ages of 80 and 90.

Per Haarr, Stavanger council’s director of welfare services says he has now started looking at tightening procedures in all of their elderly institutions, and has asked the victims’ next of kin to contact them should they need assistance.

Rogaland Police District’s lawyer, Tor Arvid Bruskeland, says police have little experience with this type of matter.

“I have never encountered a case such as this before.”
