Police say the first victim, an 18-year-old, told them at 05:50 on Sunday morning she was raped in Claus Riis' gate in St Hanshaugen following her journey from Rådhuset (Oslo City Hall) in pirate taxi.

On-duty crime Oslo Police officer Tone Bærland says to NRK, “her friend got out and the attack allegedly took place in a parking lot after the driver drove in the direction of where she lived.”

Her suspected assailant, who is believed to have driven a dark-coloured or black estate car, is described as being of Iranian or Albanian origin, approximately 1.70  metres (5 foot 5) tall, slender,with dark, wavy, semi-long hair.

He was reportedly wearing a greysuit and white shirt. Members of the public are asked to ring 22 66 99 66 with any information they may have.

The second attack, on a 20-year-old woman this time, happened near Pilestredet around midnight on Sunday morning.

“She said she was dragged into a doorway and remembers nothing more until she awoke with her panties round her knees,” reports Operations Leader Sissel Hansen.

In two separate rape attempts, a third woman in Oslo escaped after managing to fight her attackers off early yesterday morning, and a 64-year-old woman in the centre of Tønsberg, Vestfold County, was taken to hospital following her attack.

Operations Leader Jan Kristian Johnsrud of Vestfold District Police says, “The woman was alone when a mancame from behind and applied a stranglehold to her.”

Her assailant is described as being between 30 and 40 years old, approximately 1.80 metres (5 foot 9) tall, and spoke broken Norwegian.

Meanwhile, as Oslo continues to be Scandinavia’s worst rape capital, only one in eight police surveillance cameras is working, the number of private CCTV cameras is rising.

According to Liberal Party (V) leader Trine Skei Grande, only London and Tehran have more, but there is no official data to confirm this.
