Women’s rights groups in Sweden, criticized the police after a charge of sexual assault was dropped over the victim’s breast size.
Ostersund police said that they have decided to drop the charge against the IF Bjorkloven hockey player, who was not identified, as they were unable to prove that he intentionally grabbed the woman’s breasts.
Investigator Mikael Lundberg revealed that the police dropped the charge because of the woman’s large breasts.
According to the police investigation, the woman was standing at a bar table when the drunk player came up from behind her and wrapped his hand around her body.
While doing so, the player brushed up against her breasts.
Lundberg noted in his report that the woman had huge breasts and it would be difficult to avoid them. This explanation caused an uproar among activists, saying that police are blaming the victim for the attack.
One activist pointed out that soon, police will refuse to file charges if the victim was wearing a very short skirt at the time of the attack.
