Police in Sweden have arrested a man in connection with a shocking viral video that allegedly shows him spitting on and hitting a woman with her children. Last Thursday morning, police report that the man, "punched and spat on a woman who stopped him from trying to steal from an elderly person."
The incident, which took place at the Old town underground station in Stockholm, was captured on the station's CCTV. The footage was uploaded to YouTube by Swedish news website Friatider and went viral across social media.
Police gave credit for the arrest to the video going viral saying, "the man was arrested in northern Stockholm on Friday, thanks to tips received from the public."
The clip (above), which is under a minute long, shows a dark-skinned man with a beard apparently reaching into the bag of an elderly woman in front of him. A woman next to him notices and pushes the elderly woman away from the alleged robber. The woman is then spat at, and kicked by the young man as the woman's children look on by her side.
Stockholm police have also reported that a state prosecutor has decided to prosecute the arrested man for attempted aggravated theft, assault and molestation. They have set a date for a further hearing this weekend in which the accused man will be given a public defender as per his request.
