According to Sweden’s Crime Prevention Council (Brå), over the past 5 years, there has been an increase in sex attacks against girls aged 15 to 17.
Recent statistics show that there has been an increase of 51 per cent since 2015.
Nyheter Idag reports that the total number of rapes in 2019 went up by 6 per cent and now totals 8,350 cases.
This was in comparison to the total from the previous year.
There was a total of 9,730 cases of sexual abuse recorded in the same time period.
When compared to statistics from 2015, the number of sex offences in which the female victim was older than 18 was 27 per cent higher in 2019 and for cases in which the victim was 15 to 17 years old, the increase was 51 per cent.
Cases involving victims under 15 years old also increased by 11 per cent over the same period.
A report released last year by Brå revealed that in 2018, around six per cent of the Swedish population said they had been the victim of some form of sexual offence compared to just 1.4 per cent in 2011.
The surge in sex offences against underage girls is not a new trend and Swedish police promised last year to tackle the problem of sex attacks on vulnerable people and children by employing hundreds of new police officers to boost the number of officers investigating sex crimes.
Sweden has seen several high-profile cases involving the sexual abuse of children, many of which have involved migrants and asylum seekers such as a case in the summer of 2018 that involved a migrant raping an 11-year-old and getting her pregnant twice.
