Norwegian boys suspected of 11-year-old’s ‘hanging’

UPDATED: Swedish police have interrogated two Norwegian boys aged 13 and 14 in connection with the attempted murder of a Norwegian 11 year-old in Charlottenberg.



The 11-year old Norwegian victim, who was found hanging from a tree branch on Good Friday, could only get a glimpse of his attacker’s clothes, but subsequent investigations led police to the two underage boys.

Police suspicions were further strengthened by the boys’ interrogation, which took place in the presence of Child Protection authorities.

The investigation is proving particularly difficult because about 200 places were rented to Norwegian families at the Haganäset camping ground, scene of the attack.

“We have interviewed a number of those who were present at the time it occurred, but assume there several people could have information, without having been in contact with them,” Värmland police information chief Per Ström tells Dagbladet.

Meanwhile, the two minors, whose age means they are not liable for the crime, have been allowed to return home to Norway.

“Our continuing investigations will reveal whether or not Norwegian police are to be involved in questioning them, Mr Ström says.

In a press release, the police say they are not limiting their enquiries to the camping ground, as other unconnected people could be involved.
