A Swedish teen was attacked by a man who groped her in a nightclub. According to Fox News, 19-year-old Sophie Johannson said she was attacked after a man at a Swedish nightclub grabbed her and she rejected him.
The incident took place at Babel in Malmö on Saturday night. Johannson said that the unknown man grabbed her on the dance floor by her bag. She turned around, and he groped her butt and between her legs. She hit him to make him stop, and he punched her in the face.
Johansson and her friend tried to leave, but on her way out, the man hit her over the head with a glass bottle.
"I thought it was [liquid] from the bottle [on my face], but then my friend said it was running blood," she told Swedish outlet Aftonbladet. “I ended up in shock.”
A shocking photo from the incident is seen below. In the image, Johannson has blood dripping all over her face. Other graphic images can be seen seen here. The teen was taken to the hospital and reportedly required to get stitches.
Authorities have not been able to charge the man, as they don't know his identity. The victim described him as approximately 25 years old. He's 5-foot-7 with a muscular build. She said that he had dark hair and wore a dark long-sleeve shirt. Authorities are asking the public for tips on the identity of the attacker.
"I am happy and grateful that it did not end worse. But I'm a little upset about not finding the man,” she said.
The venue posted a call for tips on its Facebook page as well.
