Originally reported in the media as gang rape, the victim believes the perpetrator acted alone but doesn’t rule out that others were watching. The victim gave his testimony to the police yesterday, ruv.is reports.

The identity of the perpetrator and possible accomplices is unknown and it is also unclear precisely where the crime was committed. The case is under investigation and police are reviewing footage from security cameras in downtown Reykjavík, among other actions.
