All 41 Reviewed assault rapes in Oslo over the past three years are committed by non-Western immigrants, according to police .
– Predators are relatively young men who come from other countries. They are often asylum seekers and often come from traumatized countries or countries with a completely different view of women than we have in Norway, says Hanne Kristin Rohde of the Oslo Police violence and sexual section to NRK.

She says the perpetrators are either traumatized or mentally injured or that they come from a country where violence against women is common.

– We see that several of them have a view of women that suggests that they may at any time take control of other persons, then mostly women, says Rohde.
