Stockholm - A Jewish woman was stabbed and severely injured in Helsingborg in southern Sweden.


The attack Tuesday in Helsingborg against the woman, who is in her 60s, is being investigated as a potential hate crime though it is not clear at this point whether the victim, who is in critical condition, was targeted in connection with her being Jewish, police told the SVT broadcaster.

Police are looking for the attacker, who fled the scene.

The woman, whose relatives asked not be named in the Swedish media, was on her way to work when she was assaulted with a large knife or sharp object.

Police beefed up security around Jewish community institutions in the city.

Dare I assume the perp was Muslim? If not bias hate crime then how about attempted murder?!

Unfortunately, there are areas in Sweden where one should not go because of the crime there. Many of these areas are majority Muslim immigrants. I have been in several areas in a number of Swedish cities where I felt uncomfortable, and was later told those were dangerous areas with much crime.
