Two Rape Suspects in Custody

By Iceland Review

Two men in their 20s, suspected of having raped a woman in downtown Reykjavík last Friday night, were sentenced to one week of custody yesterday. The woman, who is in her 30s, suffered considerable injuries.

The woman was on her way home from a night club when two men attacked her in an alley and raped her. Shortly after the incident, police arrested two men suspected of having committed the crime, Fréttabladid reports.

Police are still investigating an attempted rape in an alley in central Reykjavík last February.

Late last year, two other cases of rape in central Reykjavík were reported to the Capital Region Police. One of the victims withdrew her report, and the other case remains unsolved.
