A Muslim migrant from Eritrea has been charged with raping a 3-year-old girl in Sweden. A medical center has determined that the girl now also has a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

The Swedish government have blured his face and refused to publish his name because they think he is entitled to privacy.

The 32-year-old Muslim migrant, whose name is being withheld due to Swedish privacy laws, was charged in the Attunda District Court, according to a report by Samhällsnytt. He resides in the Sundbyberg Municipality, north of Stockholm. Swedish tax records indicate that he is an Eritrean national who was first registered in Sweden in February 2010.

The charge indicates that the rape took place in a residence in Sollentuna Municipality, also north of Stockholm, in either January or February of this year. After the assault, the mother began to suspect that the girl was suffering from a disease and took her to a medical centre in Tureberg, where it was determined that she was infected with an STD. Doctors then alerted the police, and testing indicated that the Eritrean suspect has the same infection.

Police have been interrogating the migrant. Despite having lived in Sweden since 2010, he still needs a translator to communicate with officers. He denies that he committed the crime.

Crimes, and particularly sexual assaults, committed by migrants have become a serious problem in Sweden in recent years. In this month alone, three migrants have been arrested for or charged with rape, and two with murder, as previously reported by Voice of Europe.
