Kumla sexual abuse suspect detained

Örebro district court has detained a man suspected of sexual abuse against a 13-year-old girl, reports tabloid Aftonbladet. The teenager is believed to have committed suicide in Kumla last week. Örebro police say they have received six complaints about the 44-year-old man, and they think even more victims may come forward.

The man is suspected of forcing several underage girls to pose naked on the internet and threatening to publish the pictures on the web.

The man denies all accusations. Police have published the alias he reportedly used on the internet service Skype because they believe other victims may recognize the name and come forward.
