Last week, a man was subjected to a brutal robbery in Gothenburg, Sweden when two men held a knife to his throat while another used his bank card to withdraw money from an ATM Machine, Fria Tider reports.

Gothenburg, like Sweden’s capital city Stockholm, has recently seen a surge in violent crime, drugs, and armed robberies.

Swedish police have suggested that residents stay sober and head home earlier in the night to avoid any unwanted problems.

The attack took place at 11:30 p.m. on Friday.

A police spokesperson said, “Two of the perpetrators then threatened the victim with a knife to the neck. Meanwhile, the third perpetrator went on an electric bicycle and withdrew money from an ATM.”
