A teenager who attended a Swedish nightclub has spoken about the horrific injuries she suffered after being attacked when she reacted to being sexually assaulted. Sophie Johansson said that she felt the man’s hands on her backside and between her legs while she was dancing at the club in Malmo.
She hit him away, but then he launched at her, punching her in the face with a closed fist and hitting her over the head with a glass bottle.
She shared pictures of her injuries following the attack at the Babel night club on Saturday evening. Poor Sophie described the incident began with him tugging on her handbag.
She told Aftonbladet: ‘I turned around and then I felt his hand on my bottom and between my legs.’
After the punch she and a friend tried to leave the club but the man, who was in his mid-20s, smashed the bottle on the left side of her head.
She added: ‘I thought it was liquid from the bottle [on my face], but then my friend said there was blood pouring down. I was in shock.’ Sophie needed stitches to several cuts on her head and police carried out an investigation into ABH, but it was later dropped because of a lack of evidence.
Police spokesman Nils Norling said: ‘We hope that someone has seen something, seen the incident. If so, we will open up the investigation again.’
The nightclub said they have handed over all material and information available to police regarding the attack.
Babel was bombed on November 3 last year when a man on a moped sped off moments before an explosion. The club was closed at the time of the attack which blew off the doors of the club. No wonder it was bombed at first.
