Man convicted of assaulting, robbing, murdering gay men met on Internet chat sites

”All the victims were, or are, homosexual. He has taken advantage of their sexual preferences and violated them…. The crimes are very serious. He’s victimized vulnerable people. He didn’t believe they would dare report him because of their sexual orientation and because they met on the internet. This makes the crimes extra serious”

Swedish public prosecutor Fredrik Ingblad who has successfully convicted a man only described as being 35-years-old, of robbing a number of men whom he had met via internet chat rooms allegedly for sexual dates, and finally stabbing to death a 43-year-old man in Stockholm. (TheLocal.se)
