“I was brutally treated and raped at knifepoint on the pretext that I was a left-wing [expletive], that people like us like this, and finally that I was a traitor,” he said.

Police have confirmed they are investigating the matter. Sweden’s SVT said there have been no arrests so far, and the National Forensic Centre is working on the case.

Mr Liljeglod said the attack happened at the end of July, when he was walking home on a summer evening.
