"Two 20-year-old men suspected of having kidnapped a woman, robbed her and raped her roughly."
"During the winter, attacks on women continued – and now they have two men in custody."
"– these women are in a particularly vulnerable position because they work as prostitutes, " said the prosecutor, Thomas Will."
"A 20-year-old man was arrested today by the Gothenburg district court on probable cause suspected of kidnapping, aggravated rape and several cases of robbery."
"For the same acts, arrested another 20-year-old man last Friday."
"the Kidnapping, the felony rape and one case of robbery, as the men suspected, according to the prosecutor occurred on 10-11 may 2018 in Jönköping."
"the Men arrested also for two cases of robbery and assault in a court of law, which according to the prosecution occurred in december and January, in Gothenburg, sweden. In all cases, it is women who have been victims."
"– When it comes to these women, they are in a particularly vulnerable position because they work as prostitutes and in addition they come from another country. They are without protection here in Sweden, " said prosecutor Thomas Willén who is leading the investigation."
"Switching to another case."
"the police investigation regarding the kidnapping has been going on since 2018, but the two men could be apprehended now for the first of the week. "
"Even if the suspected rape and kidnapping have taken place in Jönköping, so conducted the investigation of the police in Gothenburg. "
"the Investigation has links to a case where three men were arrested for having locked up two women at a hostel in Gothenburg, sweden, where they for several hours a night förgripit on women."
"– There seems to be some kind of connection to it, and it will now investigate more closely, " says Thomas Will."

"None of the two in the day detained 20-year-old men, public defender, Stefan Fredin and Mats Svanberg, want to say something about their clients' attitude."
"– This is very new to this. I have no comments, " says Mats Svanberg, whose client was arrested today."
