Women in the Finnish capital of Helsinki have become the latest victims of sexual harassment by the migrant community. Police have revealed a number of attacks that took place over the New Year period.
“Police have received information about three cases of sexual assault, of which two have been filed as complaints,” Helsinki police said of the attacks, which occurred at the city’s main train station on New Year’s Eve.
Women were targeted in an area where around 1,000 mainly Iraqi asylum seekers were celebrating the coming of 2016.
“The suspects were asylum seekers. The three were caught and taken into custody on the spot,” Helsinki Deputy Police Chief Ilkka Koskimaki told AFP.
