Sweden: Veils used in muggings

510168b6f5ce3cdcd640efbf338d5d2c.jpgOver a period of four months six girls aged between 17 and 20 robbed fourteen elderly women in the Tensta, Rinkeby, Sundbyberg and Hässelby suburbs of Stockholm. On

Friday four of the girls were jailed by Solna district court, reported Aftonbladet.

A 19 year old was given a two month prison sentence and further probation for robbery and falsification of documents. Three 17 year olds were sentenced to youth detention of between two years and two and a half years.
The other two girls were given suspended sentences.

During the attacks the girls hid their faces behind veils. In one incident, a 71 year old woman was pushed down a staircase after three of the girls snatched her handbag.

Prosecutor Viktor Carlberg said that he was largely satisfied with the verdict.

"It was serious and repeated crime," he told Aftonbladet.
