The Throat-Slitters of Grünerløkka Gates of Vienna:
This is another example of a brutal crime in Oslo in which any hint of ethnicity has been carefully cleansed from the Norwegian media report. Once again, I’ll offer to eat my pickelhaube if there turns out to be no cultural enrichment involved.
Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer, who translated the report, has this to say about it:
The article doesn’t mention that the perpetrators of this horrific incident were immigrants, but they did threaten her in English, so I think it’s fair to assume that they weren’t Norwegians.
Nor does the article mention anything about the ethnicity of the victim, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she turns out to be ethnic Norwegian. Most of the victims are.
Grünerløkka is a culturally enriched neighbourhood in Oslo.
The translated article from today’s edition of VG Nett:
Rape charge: Victim suffered a 12 cm [5 inch] gash to the throat
Two men have been charged in connection with a brutal assault rape in Grünerløkka in Oslo
The young female victim suffered several knife cuts to the throat and was raped repeatedly.
“Shut up or I will kill you,” [she was told this in English, which would tend to suggest that the perpetrators were foreigners. — translator] she was told by one of the accused when she started crying.
The rape occurred early in the morning on August 28 last year in an apartment complex in Kirkegårdsgata. The young woman had just entered the building when she was assaulted.
