President Donald Trump received backlash on Saturday after his remarks implied a correlation between migrants in Sweden and an increase in crime in the country.

However, Fox News reports that a recent Facebook post from a Swedish police investigator, combined with recent police reports, suggest Trump may have been right on point.

Five rapes, three assaults, a pair of extortions, blackmail, an attempted murder, violence against police, and a robbery all happened within a five-day period this year, according to Swedish investigator Peter Springare’s Facebook post on Feb. 3.

Springare said the suspects were all from Muslim-majority countries – Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and Turkey – except one Swedish man who was arrested in a drug-related case, Fox News reports.

On Saturday, Trump addressed a crowd in Florida and said, in part, ““You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

This statement caused quite a bit of controversy among his non-supporters, who believed the statement was an unfair comparison between crime and migrants in Sweden. But, Trump defended his comments on Twitter, saying his statement referenced a story that was broadcast on Fox News.

Springare has not been the only Swedish official to admit there is a growing crime problem with migrants in the country. Fox News reports the police chief for the southern Swedish city of Malmo, Stefan Sinteus said 32% of Sweden’s murders, rapes, and beatings are attributed to migrants.

“We cannot do it on our own,” Chief Stefan Sinteus wrote in an open letter about the “upward spiral of violence.”

Fox News gathered data from the Swedish Police Authority, which showed Malmo had 52 hand grenade attacks in 2016, a jump from 48 attacks in 2015. The country has taken in 650,000 asylum-seekers during the past 15 years, according to Fox, and 163,000 in 2015.

Here is the above referenced Facebook letter from Peter Springare:
