Crime and justice: There are a total of 17 victims for the twelve robberies at addresses on Grünerløkka, in Vika, in Gamlebyen, at Storo-senteret and McDonald’s in Klingenberggata, writes Oslo newspaper.

Two other boys also have the status of being charged in several of the cases for which the 16-year-old is charged, but these are under the criminal minimum age and will therefore be followed up by carers or by or in collaboration with the child protection service, writes The online newspaper.

The robberies have been referred to by the police and several media as “Vipps robberies”, as they have occurred when the perpetrators have threatened with a knife and asked for access to Vipps. The perpetrators have threatened access to the victim’s Vipps accounts in order to see the balances and further cash withdrawals. They have not used Vipps to transfer the money.
