29 December, 2017
A police car that stood parked outside a police station in Malmö was blown up on Friday evening. That’s what was described by police on their home page. The detonation was very strong. Two young suspects were arrested in connection with the crime scene.
It was around 7:30pm on Friday when the police car that was parked outside the police station on Sallerupsvagen in Malmö was subjected to a detonation of some kind.
“There is a lot of damage to the police car,” write the police on their home page.
It must have been an extremely strong bang.
“It sounded ridiculously strong, and smoke is coming from the hood of the car,” said a witness who lives in the vicinity to Aftonbladet, and pointed out that it sounded much stronger than a New Year’s Eve explosive.
A large area around the police car was blocked off and crime technicians and personnel from the national bomb squad were dispatched to the scene.
Two men, born 1991 and 1995, were arrested in connection with the crime scene. They are suspected of involvement in the explosion. The investigation is continuing with, among other things, house searches, interviews with witnesses and a review of surveillance tapes, the police state.
No one was injured.
No motive for the attack is known as yet.
