Last weekend, at least ten children and young people were robbed by other minors in Oslo. This weekend the police will be more present where thefts can happen, also in civilian clothes.
We are now increasing patrols even more with both civilian police and regular police along the underground network and in places where our intelligence tells us there is a high potential for new conditions, says Police Inspector Ron Swan in the Oslo Police District NRK.
Last weekend was marked by several burglaries by people under the age of 18 in Oslo. At least ten children and young people of valuables were stolen. Police do not have a total number of suspects after the burglaries.
– We have the names of several suspects, and we are working to identify many of the perpetrators, says Police Inspector Renate Meyer Medby in the Oslo Police District.
Many of the perpetrators identified are between 15 and 17 years old.
Now the advice from the police is clear: if you are robbed – do as the thieves ask.
– If you are threatened to give up your jacket, you should give up that jacket, says Police Inspector Swann.
So far this year, 64 burglaries of people aged 10-17 have been reported in Oslo, Asker and Berom. Over the past year, the number of such cases has reached 85. According to Swan, nearly 100 percent of the cases have been resolved.
