Migrant cuts throat of Swedish student and stabs him 13 times – brags to friends about it
Last week the Umeå District Court sentenced Sudanese/Egyptian Suleman Suleman to 17 years in prison for a brutal murder on 27 April this year.
A student was murdered with thirteen stab wounds and also had his throat cut. The man bled to death in his apartment. "I would've done it again", the killer bragged to his friends.
Suleman's described as a violent career criminal. In several cases, however, he hasn't received any prison sentences – courts have judged that "an ambitious treatment" is needed instead of imprisonment.
The day of the murder 30-year-old Suleman and a friend went to 28-year-old student Albin’s apartment to buy drugs from him.
In the judgment, Albin's described as follows: "As for Albin’s person, he pursued his studies in a very good way and he was a very caring, appreciated and generally popular person. Shortly after he died he would've finished his master’s degree."
Albin had a drug addiction and sometimes also sold drugs within a small circle of friends.
Suleman was looking for drugs that night, but had no money to pay for them. That was probably why he went to Albin who was an acquaintance though friends.
The friends pushed themselves into Albin’s apartment. Suleman wanted drugs, but Albin refused to sell anything to him. Suleman then got angry and attacked Albin.
During the assault, Suleman pulled out a knife and slashed his thighs. The cuts injured his arteries, that led to severe bleeding. Shortly thereafter, he cut Albin’s throat.
The friend panicked and ran out of the Room. Suleman left the apartment shortly thereafter.
Later, he put pressure on his friend and threatened him: "We forget this day", he told him according to the police investigation.
But to his other friends he bragged about what he had done. "I cut his throat and I would've done it again," he told one of his closest friends.
However, after some time the friend who witnessed the murder had a mental breakdown and called the police. In the conversation he stated that there was a dead person in the student home in Ålidhem.
Police who arrived at the site found a dead Albin with terrible injuries and a room reminiscent of a bloodbath. Several images from the crime scene were classified.
Although Suleman tried to get rid of evidence, the police managed to find the murder weapon and tie him to the crime in several other ways. However, this wasn't his first crime in Sweden.
In 2007 he was convicted for the first time – for car theft.
Then a long series of crimes followed – 23 in total. Several crimes have obvious violent elements – for example, when he robbed and threatens to kill 2 young Swedes in Gothenburg 2011.
On another occasion the same year, he and his friends assaulted a Swedish youth on the commuter train from Alingsås to Gothenburg. The brawl started when Suleman urinated on the floor in the train. The youth confronted him about it and was severely beaten – with among other things a bottle to his head.
The common theme between these cases is that the victims of his robberies and assaults – like Albin – have all been ethnic Swedes.
But despite his continued crimes, Suleman has never ended up in prison. In several cases, the courts have judged that what's required instead is "an ambitious treatment" – that basically means probation with a special psychiatric and social-orientated treatment plan.
However, the ambitious treatment has clearly not helped the man – since within a year he had commit similar crimes. If the latest judgement stands in the supreme court, Suleman will be released again in 11 years.
