Police defend warning for solo women in northern Sweden
Police in Östersund in northern Sweden have warned women about being out on their own after dark, but the city's mayor has trashed the idea.
Officers in Östersund first advised women not to walk around on their own at night, during at press conference on Monday, explaining that there had been at least six reports of violence against women in the area since February 20th.
"Now the police are going out and warning women against travelling alone in the city. We have seen a worrying trend," regional police chief Stephen Jerand told Swedish media.
