One of Nettavisen’s journalists, who was not at work, happened to be present at Sørenga, and was able to observe the man. The journalist felt obliged, and first made a guard at the scene, and then the police, familiar with what the man was doing, and a patrol was sent to the scene.

– It was first my friend who saw the man touch the ass of several of the girls. Afterwards, he heard one of the girls comment to her friends that “he touched my ass”, says the journalist.

Followed the movements

The online newspaper‘s journalist then followed the man’s movements, and discovered a pattern.

– He walked back and forth, restless, at the same time as he looked around. It was so obvious that when a group of girls came, he followed them. If the girls went out into the water, he followed, the journalist says and continues:

– When they were out in the water, he circled quietly around them and approached carefully. The last time I observed it, I just had to get up with my cell phone to document. It was really “creepy”.

Video footage shows the man swimming very close to the girls, back and forth while watching them.

– It is quite clear what was the intention of the man, the friend of the journalist says.
