A 17-year-old Swedish boy in the town of Torsas has told his mother that he was raped by a gang of teenage girls. His mother then called the police to report the assault. The family has been targeted before.
The same day the boy was allegedly raped, he was also attacked by two male youths. Owing to the small population in the town, the boy was able to provide police with the identity of one of his rapists.
The boy's mother was the victim of threats posted on a Web site.
