A boy has been stabbed with a knife in Universitetsgata in the center of Oslo, the police say. No one has been arrested so far. 

“The victim has been taken to hospital. He is conscious and does not appear to be seriously injured,” operations manager Kim Vindsland in the Oslo Police District said.

A police patrol nearby stumbled upon a fight between a group of about 15 young men.

“We have not seen the stabbing itself. Several people were fighting, and several people ran away from the scene when we arrived. When we got control of the victim, we discovered that he had been stabbed,” Vindsland told NTB.

The boy is between 15 and 17 years old. 

“The police have secured clues at the crime scene,” Vindsland added.

    That’s only 2 or 3 blocks from the Slott/Palace and closer to tourist attractions like the Historisk Museum let alone being at the downtown University.
    So are the royal family – let alone tourists – safe in Oslo?
    Norway’s traditional reasonable, compassionate approach to crime has no deterrent effect at all on such a hardcore (and breeding) criminal culture, like which is already consuming Sweden.
    Emergency laws and action protocols are going to have to be created fast, before we *do* become Sweden … if we aren’t already.
