Tied up and photographed by co-workers

Linda Genborg 2009-01-15

A 21 year old female worker at SKF had her legs and arms tied by two male co-workers who then laid her down on the factory floor and photographed her.

During a break, on a Sunday last November, one of the men walked up behind the woman, who was sitting on a chair, he grabbed her hands and yelled for his friend to come and help him. Together they tied her hands and legs.

The woman first took it as a joke and laughed. But soon felt uncomfortable and started screaming for the men to stop.

Then the men lifted her and forced her down on the oily factory floor. When she tried to get up, they pushed her down again.

- After a while, I felt like I couldn't take it anymore. I just lay there quiet. At the same I saw flashes and understood they were taking photos of me, says the woman in a police report.

Whilst she was lying on the floor, one of the men reportedly said; "I like you better when you lay down".

A police investigation against the two men started yesterday (January 14). Both men have expressed deep regret over the incident, and claim they were only joking. They say they didn't realise how serious the woman took it until after they had untied her.

SKF condemns the incident, and has told the men they either had to quit their jobs or they would be fired. Both men have chosen to quit their job.
