A 34-year-old man from Somalia accused of raping a dying woman in a garage in Stockholm. According to the prosecutor died the woman during the rape, but the man chose to continue the abuse. Prosecution has also been brought for breaching the peace of the grave.
It was early in the morning of 27 September. Police received an alarm that the two men were having intercourse with a woman who was completely unconscious on the floor of a parking garage under the Sheraton Hotel in Vasagatan in Stockholm.
When police arrived at the scene they found a 34 year old man from Somalia, who was in the midst of an anal intercourse with the woman. Police checked the woman’s pulse and found that she was dead.
The man was arrested by police and detained two days later by the Stockholm District Court, on suspicion of aggravated rape. The prosecutor had asked for him to be arrested for murder, but the district court found that the evidence for the suspicion was not strong enough.
Now the 34-year-old is charged with rape and crimes against the peace of the grave. According to the indictment, the woman was alive but helpless on the ground, such as from the influence of drugs and alcohol, when the man began anal intercourse with her. The prosecution alleges that the woman died during the sexual intercourse and the man then proceeded to have sex with the dead body.
The “[34 year old] has … performed sexual acts after [the woman] had died and therefore certainly affronted the body of [the woman],” the prosecutor in that part of the description of the act relating to the crime of disturbing the peace of the grave.
The accused man denies that he was guilty of rape. According to him, there was voluntary sexual intercourse between him and the woman.
But that explanation does not hold, says the prosecutor who indicted the 34-year-old.
– She is dying and the influence of various products so I think that she cannot give consent to voluntary sexual intercourse. She is in a vulnerable situation that allows this to be classified as a rape, said prosecutor Daniel Jonsson to Fria Tider.
At the autopsy, it was found that the woman had alcohol, traces of cocaine and various prescription drugs in her body when she died. There were no signs of external violence, according to Daniel Jonsson, who explains that the cause of death is listed as an “abuse-related accident” in the autopsy report. The woman may have died from a combination of the influence of drugs and the fact that she was in generally poor physical condition.
The other man who witnesses saw at the site has been cleared of suspicion, because the prosecutor believes that there is not sufficient evidence to charge him with any crime.
The 34-year-old is also being prosecuted for another similar rape that allegedly occurred on 13 August. At that point, the man targeted a woman who, according to the prosecution, was in a vulnerable position because of “sleep and intoxication.”
