The teenage girl had left the train station when she was attacked outside a school and pulled to the ground. During the attack, the girl fought back and was hit several times in the face.
The attacker later claimed that the girl “deserved” to be raped because she “hated black people” reports Samnytt.
The attacker was born in 1994 and is a citizen of Somalia.
It was early in the morning on the 19th of October when the attack took place in the region of Stockholm.
He pulled her to the ground and attempted to rape her.
The girl managed to kick and hit the man in the face with her keys, while he was hitting her several times in the face.
At last she managed to flee by getting out of her jacket that the attacker had a hold of.
She quickly went home and woke up her brother who went back to the crime scene and found the attacker. Police were quickly on the scene to arrest the man.
The girls mascara, mobile phone and jacket was found by the police.
The man got permanent residency in Sweden in 2007, but he is not a citizen of Sweden.
He claims that the girl refused to loan out her mobile phone to him, and that she hit him in his eye with her keys. Further, he claims that the girl was racist towards people of color.
The court ruled that his claims were completely improbable, amongst other things because the girl is considerably smaller and shorter than him.
The prosecutor did not want the man deported because he has permanent residency in Sweden and that the crime wasn’t “serious enough”.
“Had it been serious rape I probably would have pleaded for it. Had it been a more serious crime I probably would have pleaded for deportation.” the prosecutor told Samnytt.
The attacker has been in trouble with the law before. He has been in trouble for narcotics and violent crime.
He was sentenced to 1 year and 6 months in prison for attempted rape and narcotics charges. He is also to pay SEK 56 000 ($5957) in damages to the girl.
This is not the first time that sex offenders have recieved light sentences in Sweden.
As we reported on earlier, a 19 year old man was sentenced to 75 hours community service for sex crimes against a 13 year old girl.
