Brunnsparken is located in the centre of Gothenburg. On 2 March 2023, a ten-year-old girl was stabbed in the stomach and suffered life-threatening injuries when a man attacked her at Brunnsparken in broad daylight. The perpetrator at the time was an Iranian immigrant who has a criminal record with dozens of cases, but still walks freely on Swedish streets.
