  • Description

    In an attempt to find a man responsible for raping two woman, Oslo police are taking fingerprints of over 3,000 men between the ages of sixteen and eighty living in the area where the incidents occurred.

    Both women - one the elderly wife of a priest, and the other an attractive 21-year-old - were sleeping in their beds when attacked.

    The men are not compelled to give their fingerprints, but so far only two have refused. British police adopted this method in 1948 to find the kidnapper of a four-years old girl from a Blackburn hospital bed. Then they finger printed the entire male population of Blackburn -- some 46,000 - before capturing 22-years old Peter Griffiths.

    Fingerprints are taken to the Oslo Criminal Laboratory and compared with specimens taken from the younger woman's bedroom window.

    Police say if this exercise fails, they will fingerprint the entire male population of Oslo if necessary.
