Swedish police to hand out anti-groping armbands
Swedish police have launched a campaign aimed at curbing sexual harassment among young people.
A debate about sexual molestation flared in Sweden earlier this year after it emerged that groups of boys had groped girls at the We Are Sthlm youth festival for two years running.
"We're hoping mainly that this will get boys to think twice. A lot of them don't seem to realize that this is a crime," national police chief Dan Eliasson told news agency TT.
Swedish police were heavily criticized for not releasing details on the total 36 reports of sexual assault and two rape allegations filed after the festivals in 2014 and 2015.
