Investigation regarding abuse etc. in Stockholm to be discontinued
In the case concerning an American artist who has been arrested on suspicion of assault since 5 July, a counter-notice was also made against an injured party in the case. The preliminary investigation has been going on in parallel where the injured party was suspected of abuse, assault and attempted assault. The preliminary investigation in that matter is now discontinued and the injured party is no longer suspected of any crime.
“The person who filed the counter-notice repeatedly asks the other person to leave. When he refuses to leave, the other person first pushes him away and then takes a grip around the other persons neck and lifts him away a few meters. In this situation, the person throws his headphones on the notifier, and tries to hand out battles, which may be considered as right to self-defense.”, says Senior Public Prosecutor Daniel Suneson, the person in charge of the investigation.
On Friday 19 July, Stockholm District Court granted the prosecutor more time to continue the preliminary investigation of the case concerning the American artist and two other persons, who have been detained since 5 July on probable cause on suspicion of assault in Stockholm.
That investigation is still ongoing. The prosecutor must decide on this matter no later than Thursday 25 July at 11 am CET.
The prosecutor is not available to the media for the time being. When new information is available, a press release will be released.
Case number in Stockholm District Court: B 9283-19
