When Nanna Skovmand was walking home on Christmas Eve from a night out with her boyfriend, she never thought her life would change in an instant.
Detailing the horrific events on Facebook, Nanna and Mads Schøllhammer were returning to their home in Copenhagen when they were approached by a Somali Muslim teen, believed to be around 16 or 17 years of age, according to Denmark’s 10News.
Riding a bike, the young man circled the couple, taunting and provoking them. He then got off his bike and approached them. At that point, Mads asked the youth, “What do you want?”
That’s when the situation turned violent.
The teen smashed a glass bottle over Mads’ head. Then, as if on cue, at least two or three other Somali teens came out from a nearby building, each one carrying “iron chains,” the kind used for securing bikes or scooters.
The group of teens attacked Mads first, beating him repeatedly with the heavy chains. Selflessly fearing for her safety, Mads screams for Nanna to flee, but she is afraid they will kill him if she leaves. Instead, she heroically intervenes, only to direct the attention of the thugs upon herself.
“He shouted at me that I should run, but I was afraid that they would kill him. So I intervened,” she said.
Nanna was severely beaten, leaving her with multiple bruises and cuts on her face. Her lip was split all the way up to her nostril, and she lost a tooth in the attack. However painful her injuries are, the mental trauma from such a frightening experience is much worse:
“The blood is streaming from my mouth, the back of my head and the other wounds. My lip is split in two, all the way up to the nose. … I do not understand.. I am left with a lot of questions. Why? Why us? What is the meaning of this extreme violence? What is happening in the head of those immigrants, when they thrash a couple that is on their way home from Christmas Eve? I am filled with hate, frustration, and sadness. I do not want them in my neighbourhood, my city, or my country.”
10News provided a description of the suspects:
A: Man, foreigner possible Somali background 16-17 years wearing blue hooded sweatshirt, dark clothes and white sneakers shoes.
B: Male maybe Somali 16-17 years, bald wearing black winter jacket with white hoodie, light jeans and dark shoes.
Islam is currently the largest minority religion in Denmark, making up 4.8 percent of the small country’s population.
Denmark has been seeing a quick growth in Muslim immigrants, and subsequently is witnessing crime and unrest skyrocket. Muslims are 5 times as violent as ethnic Danes, and although they make up a small percentage, Muslims are a major percentage of the prison population.
