Norwegian musicians charged with rape

Two Norwegian rock musicians have been arrested and charged in Canada for drugging and raping a woman in the band’s tour bus after a concert in Toronto.

«I can confirm that the Norwegian consul in Toronto has been in contact with the arrestees, and followed up by, among other things, visiting them in jail and obtaining legal assistance,» said Anne Lene Dale Sandstein, press officer of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to TV 2 Nettavisen.

According to Canadian police, the crimes were committed after the world famous band had performed at the club «Fun Haus» in Toronto this past Tuesday, reported the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.

«A woman from Toronto explained that she went with the two Norwegian musicians to their tour bus,» said Kristin Bacharach at the Toronto police to the paper. There she was reportedly drugged and sexually assaulted.

Bacharach confirmed that the two musicians have been arrested and are charged. DNA tests have been taken. If found guilty, the two musicians may be sentenced to ten years in prison.
