The Stockholm metro station Rinkeby was opened in 1975.
In June 2010, Rinkeby was the scene of riots and attacks against the local police station.
In 2016 an Australian news team from 60 Minutes along with Jan Sjunnesson an editor of the Swedish publication Avpixlat had their camera man hit by a car when the team arrived at Rinkeby. After making journalistic contact with inhabitants, "the team gets surrounded by young, ill-tempered men. The police is present but disappear for unclear reasons immediately prior to the attack" that followed, which included hits and kicks. In May of the same year, an interview team of the Norwegian public broadcaster NRK along with Swedish police and right wing economist Tino Sanandaji were attacked.
Another riot broke out in February 2017. Fires were started by rioters, and at least seven cars were burned. Rioters threw rocks at police, who responded with warning shots, and later with "shots for effect" intended to hit their target.
