A Tunisian man, who has been branded ‘the most hated man in Sweden’ after video showed him attacking a woman in front of her two young children and then spitting on her at a metro station in Stockholm, is being deported to Denmark, Expressen.se reports.
The attack took place on January 5 at Gamla Stan station in the Swedish capital. The video footage shows the man kicking and punching the victim after she attempted to prevent him stealing from the handbag of an elderly woman.
The police went public with the video on Thursday and on Friday he was identified and arrested. It is reported that he sought asylum in Sweden in October but that his application was rejected and the Swedish migration agency Migrationsverket has decided to send him back to the last country he was in before entering Sweden, which is Denmark.
