Details: The incident occurred in the Karmøy district, where municipal housing is located, on the evening of 14 June. A man from Ukraine, who relied partially on a wheelchair, was stabbed to death.


The police detained a Norwegian man, also in his early 20s, at the scene. He has been charged with murder and is currently in custody, but he has not been willing to give a statement to the police.

Prosecutor Siri Anne Flindall told Dagbladet that the accused and the deceased had been neighbours. They resided in the Karmøy area, where municipal housing is situated. This area accommodates people requiring additional care or undergoing treatment for drug addiction.

In response, Sigurd Rønningen, the lawyer representing the detained Norwegian, has claimed that the deceased man had repeatedly threatened his client, even with death. Consequently, he is requesting an investigation into the matter.


The Norwegian police are currently refusing to comment on the circumstances of the case.

Background: Earlier this month, seven individuals accused following the death of a Ukrainian citizen at the Wrocław centre for individuals under the influence of alcohol in Poland were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 1.5 to 5 years.
