STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- A Swedish man is accused of raping five teenage girls he allegedly met on Facebook, prosecutors said.

The 23-year-old suspect from Blekinge, in southern Sweden, is charged with six counts of rape, the news agency TT reported Wednesday. Two of the alleged victims were under the age of 15.
