Sweden: Military-aged Somali migrant arrested for assaulting 21 people

Police in Sweden have arrested a 22-year-old Somali migrant who's suspected of carrying out several unprovoked assaults against women in Eskilstuna this month.  

The military-aged Somali migrant first was brought to the attention of police after several women in the area had reported having been hit in the face and spit on by a "very dark-skinned man" who was traveling on a bicycle.  

Investigators reportedly had named the elusive Somalian ‘the bicycle man’. It wasn’t until this week when police were able to catch up to ‘the bicycle man’ and arrest him. On Friday, the man was arrested on probable cause for a large number of cases of abuse and fraud, and making illegal threats, Fria Tider reports.  

‘The bicycle man’ is believed have attacked at least 21 people since last summer. Most of his victims are said to have been women. Police were able to arrest him following his most recent attack on September 17th.  

According to the arrest report, the man is 22-years-old with Somalian citizenship and has required an interpreter in Somali. Prosecutors say that there’s reason to believe that the migrant will continue to commit crimes. The motive behind the attacks remains unclear.
