Two suspects released


Ben Kendall 2012-04-12

Victim shows first signs of improvement. Two of the boys that were detained by police in connection to the attack of a 61-year-old man on Kortedala Torg have been released. On Tuesday morning they were moved to a youth facility in West Sweden.

Two others, believed to be the main perpetrators, remain in police custody. The prosecutor will request an additional 14 days in custody on Friday.

The preliminary investigation continues. In total, seven teenage boys are suspects in the case. Five of them are being held at youth facilities and two are in police custody at the police station on Skånegatan.

The victim Carl-Eric sustained skull injuries and has been hospitalised since the attack more than three weeks ago. He is now showing some signs of improvement and is no longer completely dependent on a respirator, writes Göteborgs-Posten on Thursday.
