A 28-year-old Swedish citizen who was indicted for trying to kill three men at a nightclub in Storgata Oslo in February this year has been sentenced to ten years in prison.
The unanimous verdict was reached at the Oslo District Court on Monday. The man was convicted of two attempted murders and one case of grievous bodily harm.
The sentence is one year shorter than the prosecutor’s claim for eleven years in prison. The defendant pleaded guilty in part to the indictment.
According to the indictment, the 28-year-old attacked the three men with a knife outside the restaurant Rett Inn Bar in Storgata just after 2 a.m. on Sunday 10th February. Two of the men were stabbed in the abdomen, while the third was inflicted with a 10-centimeter cut in the right forearm.
Furthermore, the court emphasized that the now 28-year-old man in 2012 was sentenced to three years in prison for gross abuse in Sweden. The man is also convicted of possession of several hundred narcotic tablets.
In addition to the prison sentence, the 28-year-old must pay a total of just over NOK 700,000 in damages and compensation to the three men.
