The family’s 4 year old boy was sleeping only metres away from where the grenade exploded.
Late Monday evening a villa north of Stockholm was targeted in a grenade attack. Police suspect that the attack was revenge because the dad in the family had reported a person to the police.
Earlier the same day, the man had reportedly been run over by a mopedist, after which he took a photo of the driver and called police.
Only hours later his house is bombed, the attack was caught on security cameras.
A man can be seen throwing the grenade at the house while shouting “drive” in Swedish and jumping on a motorbike. Seconds later a massive explosion takes place.
Police suspect that a criminal network is behind the grenade attack.
People living in the area have for a long time reported having problems with motocross bikes and mopeds, with drivers harassing citizens.
This behaviour has led to incidents, with a 4 year old boy being hit. He survived without major injuries.
The bombings in Sweden is a continuing crisis with a whopping 257 explosions taking place last year.
