South-West District Police said on Thursday that they feel less certain that a three-year-old boy was sexually assaulted at a Stavanger asylum centre but are continuing to investigate the case.
In a press release sent on Thursday, police said that the boy has been examined by hospital officials and his mother has given statements about what happened at the Forus Akuttinnkvartering asylum centre on January 6. 
 
“The boy was quickly taken in and examined at the hospital along with his mother. The information that police have received thus far from these examinations weaken the suspicion that there has been a sexual assault,” the statement read. 
 
 
Police said that it was asylum centre representatives that reported the possible rape at the facility. 
 
The alleged rape reportedly took place in the centre's common area. A police spokesman said on Monday that the boy and several other people had been questioned. 
 
On Thursday, police said that they still have not gotten to the bottom of the case. 
 
“The police are awaiting further analysis results that we hope can contribute to clearing up what happened,” the police wrote.
