A “hundreds strong” mob of men clad in black with black masks stormed the Stockholm train station beating up refugees and anyone who didn’t appear ethnically Swedish. The men allegedly targeted mostly unaccompanied refugee children as a form of revenge for the slaying of female asylum worker Alexandra Mezher. The Swedish aide worker was allegedly killed by a Somali boy as she attempted to break up a fight between two migrant children.
The Daily Mail reports that a group of 200 men went on a rampage through the Stockholm train station in a bid to seek revenge over the murder of a female asylum worker. The men beat migrants and refugee children as they made their way through the train station. It was noted that the mob was mainly targeting unaccompanied minors that appeared to be migrants. Additionally, they were beating up anyone who did not appear to be Swedish.
The violent attackers were wearing all-black balaclavas and armbands as they descended upon the area. Though 200 men were part of the group, the local authorities say there is only evidence of 40 to 50 of them partaking in the beatings. Instead, the majority of the black-clad mob were passing out leaflets to people at the train station that featured the words “Enough Now.” The leaflets contained information that the police call xenophobic and that it called for something to be done about the migrant problem in Sweden. The leaflet outlines that the Swedish police can no longer contain the problem and that the police are showing more sympathy for refugees than the woman being killed and sexually assaulted by the refugees.
“All over the country, reports are pouring in that the police can no longer cope with preventing and investigating the crimes which strike the Swedish people. In some cases, for example, in the latest murder of a woman employed at a home for so called ‘unaccompanied minor refugees’ in Molndal, it goes as far as the National Police Commissioner choosing to show more sympathy for the perpetrator than the victim. But we refuse to accept the repeated assaults and harassment against Swedish women.”

After passing out the leaflets, the group then began beating any migrants or people appearing to be of foreign descent. The group claims to be a vigilante group calling it their “duty” to make the streets safe again for the Swedish population. The leaflet notes that the streets of Sweden are no longer safe and that police are doing nothing about it. Therefore, they are taking matters into their own hands.
“We refuse to accept the destruction of our once to safe society. When our political leadership and police show more sympathy for murderers than for their victims, there are no longer any excuses to let it happen without protest.When Swedish streets are no longer safe to walk on for normal Swedes, it is our DUTY to fix the problem.”
The violence is seemingly the result of the death of 22-year-old Swedish social worker Alexandra Mezher. The young woman was allegedly stabbed to death while she attempted to break up a fight between two migrant boys at the home she worked for unaccompanied refugee children. The targeting of the Stockholm train station may also be the result of a warning issued by Swedish police in which it was noted that the Stockholm’s main train station has become unsafe after being “taken over” by dozens of Moroccan street children.

Though the actions of the mob of men are being deemed criminal by the local police, the Swedish authorities also note that the concerns with asylum seekers are growing as sexual assaults and attacks against women continue to rise in Stockholm. It was noted that gangs of teen asylum seekers roam the streets preying on women and that they refuse all help from the Swedish authorities.
Four people have been arrested in connection with the attacks, one arrest was for assaulting a police officer, while the others were charged with being masked in public, which is illegal in Sweden. All four men are facing a series of fines.
