Friday night a gang of about 10 people attacked the local police station in Farsta in southern Stockholm area.
The gang, which consisted of “younger men”, poured flammable liquid over 4-5 police cars parked outside the station. They also blocked the door leading from the station to the parking lot, to prevent the cops from coming out and extinguish the fire.
A plainclothes police officer saw what was happening and managed to grab one of the perpetrators. This apparently got the rest of the gang to leave. The arrested person is in his 20s. …
Police categorize the incident as attempted sabotage alternatively attempted vandalism. Because the crime was directed against the law enforcement and is one of a series of attacks in recent years against the Swedish judicial system, the crime also meets the criteria to be characterized as a terrorism.
