The aunt tells the newspaper that Foss was born in Kazakhstan in 1988. She later moved to Chechnya with her aunt, before they finally returned to their homeland as a result of the war in Chechnya.

She says she and Foss came to Norway in 2002. They traveled to Norway when opportunities for a good life were scarce in Kazakhstan, she says. Foss’s mother remained in Kazakhstan and his father died.

On Wednesday, it emerged that the State Administrator in Oslo and Viken will open a supervisory case with the health service after the incident in Bislett on Tuesday.

The monitoring case will take a closer look at what kind of medical care the 33-year-old received prior to the episode.

Foss was convicted after stabbing a person at Ankerbrua in Oslo in 2019.

Sentenced to compulsory mental health care

On December 11 last year, Rustam Louis Foss was sentenced to compulsory mental health care at the Oslo District Court. It happened after he stabbed a man on Grünerløkka Street in 2019. There was no connection between the two.

Following the incident, a forensic psychiatric evaluation was performed on Foss. The experts who evaluated it point out that Foss had a “difficult and traumatic childhood and youth.” He grew up in war-torn Chechnya.

In 2013/2014, Foss entered the Theater Academy. He must have had a dream of becoming a Hollywood actor, say several who knew him. The 33-year-old starred in the short film “Shadows against the city.” In addition, he had several minor roles, including in “Lilyhammer” and “Empty Barrels 2.”

But after two years, the education stopped. This is due to behavioral difficulties that the school did not accept, according to the ruling of the Oslo District Court.


“After this, it appears that he has had a severe functional disability and has not been able to ‘recover’ even though the theater faculty has supported him and he has sought professional help.”
