The crime took place around 5 PM Monday afternoon at Järntorget Central Gothenburg. The perpetrator(s) escaped by tramcar. Police are investigating attempted murder.
This is the new normal in Sweden. Knife fight in a crowded central Gothenburg in the middle of the afternoon yet there are no journalists investigating the scene, interviewing eyewitnesses or informing the public. Swedish journalists simply copy/paste police reports.
The Swedish police are as always very tight-lipped and extremely reluctant to inform the public about crimes, related suspects and circumstances. The general public should stay calm and not be afraid.
This is standard procedure in Sweden regarding all violent crimes. Police and journalist are extremely focused on supporting the general public’s perception of reality. But its beginning not to work.
