Sweden truck attack suspect 39-year-old Uzbekistan-born man

The truck rammed into a Swedish department store

The man was detained north of Stockholm in the early hours of Friday (Thursday evening ET), police said.

Bevington worked as a director for the music streaming service Spotify.

The man was arrested on suspicion of perpetrating a terror attack. A second arrest was reportedly made later. "We are thinking about the victims - their families and friends - and those who were injured", he said. Our thoughts are with them and all those affected at this bad time.

"We will always do everything we can to protect Sweden, but we can't guarantee that it won't happen again", Lofven told reporters later Friday.

The stolen beer truck used in the attack. Two people have been arrested in the attack.

The suspect was not on any current list of people being monitored.

Spokeswoman Karin Rosander told The Associated Press "a person suspected of terrorist offenses by murder has been arrested" on Sunday.

"Sweden has been attacked", Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told reporters. Their identities were not released.

Officials said the incident occurred on one of Stockholm's major pedestrian streets in a busy shopping district at 3 p.m. local time.

"The Migration Agency rejected it in June 2016 and also decided that he was to be expelled", he added. "We are now investigating its content", Eliasson said.

Intelligence agency Sapo said meanwhile it was hunting for "possible accomplices or networks that may have been involved in the attack".

He said the four victims killed in the Stockholm attack included one person from Britain, one from Belgium and two Swedes. Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm said that six of the injured had been released.

Soderberg said Sunday that "an important task" for caregivers is to continue giving "long-term psychological support to those who need it" after the attack that killed four people Friday. While the driver's motive is not yet confirmed, the International Crisis Group estimates that between 2,000 to 4,000 militants from Central Asia may have volunteered to fight with ISIS over the past several years.

Last month, a man rammed into crowds on Westminster Bridge in London, killing three people before stabbing a policeman to death outside Parliament. "But that is what we are going to do". In Brussels, the Belga news agency said the Belgian woman had been reported missing before she was identified by her identity papers and later by DNA testing.

Witnesses say the truck drove straight into the entrance of the Ahlens Department Store on Drottninggatan, the city's biggest pedestrian street, sending shoppers screaming and running.

"I thought everyone would run past me and save themselves", Papusa Ciuraru, whose foot was crushed by a boulder displaced by the speeding truck, told the Expressen daily.

Vehicles have also been used as weapons in Nice and Berlin in the past year in attacks claimed by Islamic State.

Hundreds of people gathered at the site of the crash Saturday afternoon, building a wall of colorful flowers on the aluminum fences to keep the people away from the broken glass and twisted metal. Security has been stepped up and border controls are in place.

A further 15 were injured.

The store said it would reopen Monday "without any damaged goods". It was quickly put out.

Swedish media are reporting overnight police raids to bring people in for questioning as authorities investigate the deadliest attack in Stockholm in years.
