On Friday night, a man was threaten with a knife by two other men in an attempted robbery. The victim disarmed the robbers, gained possession over the knife and used it against his attackers. All three men where taken into custody by the police. The incident left one person with injuries that required hospital care.
The robbers where arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery. Their victim was also arrested, but on suspicion of attempted manslaughter. Sweden have no ”stand your ground laws”. Any violence used for the purpose of self defense, must be ”proportional” to the threat it is intended to eliminate .
These events took place in central Kungälv, a small city in the Gothenburg region.
