Immigrant robs father and leave him unconscious on rail track (SVT news)
The perpetrator stalked the 38-year old, robbed him, and left him on the railroad track
A few days ago, the metro in Stockholm stopped at the Sandsborg station. A 38-year old father, on his way home after a night out, was one his way home. But he was not alone.
From the same carriage another man exits who has followed the father. The father sits down on a bench, and the man starts to go through his pockets, as the 38-year old is very drunk.
After a while, the father stands up and walks forward. He unfortunately steps towards the rail track and falls down right on his head, ending up unconscious on the rail track. The other man, after a few seconds, jumps down to the tracks immediately afterwards.
But it was not to help the unconscious father the man jumped down — It was to rob him. According to one source, he stole a wallet, a phone and jewelry. After the theft, the man left the father lying on the rail track, unconscious, without calling for help or alerting anyone else.
Ten minutes later, the father was driven over by the train. One of his feet was crushed, and he has injuries in his face and his shoulder, says Dan Östman from the police. The thief, according to the police, is known from earlier incidents for having robbed other people, but the police have yet to identify him.

Transcript, video 1:
|00:04||3.30 Sunday morning,|
|00:08||a metro train stopped at Sandsborg station [south Stockholm].|
|00:12||A 38-year-old father of small children stepped off, on his way home from a happy night out with|
|00:16||some friends. But he was not alone. A man wearing|
|00:20||a blue jacket left the same metro car, searching for|
|00:24||the tipsy father. After a short moment, the father wobbled very near|
|00:28||the platform's edge.|
|00:32||Then he fell down on the track. And only a few seconds after he|
|00:36||fell down the other man came to the platform’s edge, looking down|
|00:40||at this person, then hopped down. - But it was not in order|
|00:44||to help the man - by now unconscious - that the man in the blue jacket|
|00:48||hopped down on the track, it was to rob him.|
|00:52||According to what we learn, he took a wallet, a mobile phone and a|
|00:56||golden chain. After the robbery, the man left without alerting the|
|01:01||rescue service nor informing the turnstile guard. Ten|
|01:05||minutes later, the father was run over by a metro train. -|
|01:09||One of his feet was crushed, and his face was injured, and|
|01:13||an ankle was damaged. He is rather severely injured. - Did he have a|
|01:17||guardian angel, that he survived? - Yes, this is the least you can say. For being|
|01:21||run over by a train usually doesn't go that well. - The robber|
|01:25||is known from earlier occasions. Last month, he robbed another|
|01:29||drunken man on the metro. - We will|
|01:33||identify him rather soon. We|
|01:37||are extraordinarily optimistic that we will soon capture him.|
Transcript, video 2:
|00:44||Saturday [night], father of a small child,|
|00:48||Johnny was on his way home from a party after the annual Brolin|
|00:52||golf tournament. This was the last weekend of his paternal leave, and|
|00:56||he would have returned to work on Monday. It was something he was looking forward|
|01:00||to, but which|
|01:04||will not happen for a long time to come.|
|01:12||The perpetrator has chosen Johnny as his victim, and he follows him|
|01:16||when he leaves the train. When Johnny falls asleep on a bench, the man grubs|
|01:20||through his pockets. Johnny is getting irritated that the man|
|01:24||won't leave him alone. -|
|01:28||Johnny gets up voluntarily, he doesn't seem to be quite all right, walks|
|01:32||towards the platform's edge, it looks like he will vomit or something,|
|01:36||but he loses his balance and falls,|
|01:40||hits his head against the rails and becomes unconscious.|
|01:45||Then we see the man go forward, look at|
|01:49||Johnny, then cold as ice hops down on the track,|
|01:53||frisks Johnny for his valuables, climbs out again|
|01:57||and then leaves. - It is 8 minutes until the next|
|02:01||train's arrival, and the man leaves the site. He waves|
|02:05||gladly to the turnstile guard, fully conscious of what is about to happen.|
|02:09||Johnny still lies on the track.|
|02:13||Johnny is hit by the train, but miraculously survives and now lies at the hospital.|
|02:17||Half his left foot was amputated, his right|
|02:21||knee will never recover, and he will need months|
|02:25||of rehabilitation. Police are|
|02:29||extremely interested in capturing the perpetrator and have therefore directed themselves|
|02:33||to Efterlyst ['wanted' - this programme].|
|02:37||This man, wearing a|
|02:41||blue jacket and black trousers, left Johnny on the track|
|02:45||to die. The man is between 35 to 40 years old and about|
|02:49||170 to 180 cm tall. These images were taken shortly|
|02:53||after he left the unconscious Johnny behind on the track. Here|
|02:57||he gladly waves at the turnstile guard, without mentioning a word about Johnny lying|
|03:01||on the track. According to police, this is not the first time this man has stolen|
|03:05||from drunken persons. - In the|
|03:09||other cases similar to this one, the perpetrator|
|03:13||checked his victims on the train, wondering if they had lain|
|03:17||and slept in their intoxication. -|
|03:21||Do you know who he is, have you met him?|
|03:25||All information is interesting. Call Efterlyst, at|
|03:30||08 702 0090.|
