by , under Enrique Tessieri

A Pakistani was stabbed several times on Friday night in Vantaa, according to Helsinki Times. The victim is 37 and the father of a four-year-old child. 

UPDATE: The police service put out a statement Tuesday about the stabbing. It gave no details except that the investigation is ongoing. A story in Helsingin Sanomat quotes detective chief inspector, Mikko Minkinen, was quoted as saying that apparently, it wasn’t a hate crime.

Writes Helsinki Times: “Assailants inflicted 20-30 stab wounds on the victim using knives and other edged weapons. His lips were also cut, and was stabbed near the eye. Fortunately, the victim was transferred to hospital urgently and underwent a major surgery. Although still in ICU [intensive care unit] and in critical condition with severe injuries, his situation is not life-threatening anymore, and he has regained consciousness.”

The attack happened on Friday and Helsinki Times is apparently the only paper in Finland that reported the incident.

As usual, the police has taken its time in putting out a statement about the motive of the crime.

If something is interesting to watch, it is the police and how long it will take to update us on the terrible incident.

Why is this important? Because in Finland, and due to the anti-immigration atmosphere and rise in hate crimes, one can never be too sure about motives that involve a vile attack against a visible migrant.

On behalf of Migrant Tales, we wish the victim a speedy recovery.
