A man in his 40s was arrested by police when Color Line docked in Oslo on Sunday morning. The man is charged with violence against his cohabitant.


The man was taken by Security on the ferry Color Magic on its sailing from Kiel to Oslo after the guards observed that he struck his cohabitant.

– “They perceived him as hostile so they put him under arrest. He was quite loud when he was apprehended by the guards,” said Operation Manager Tor Grøttum to TV 2.
