Three British tourists have been arrested after a woman reported being raped at the same hotel in Magaluf where another woman was allegedly gang-raped less than two weeks ago. The incident occurred in Majorca, and the suspects were detained as they attempted to board a flight to Manchester. The woman who reported the incident, believed to be British, has mentioned the possibility of being drugged before the assault. Tests are being conducted to determine if any suspicious substances were involved.
A statement from the Civil Guard confirmed the arrests, stating that the suspects are believed to have committed a sexual aggression crime against the woman. The incident was reported to the police after a young tourist informed them that she had been raped by men she had met the previous night at the hotel. She also expressed the feeling of being chemically subdued, possibly due to the consumption of drugs. The alleged aggressors were identified, and they were arrested at Palma Airport before attempting to board a flight to Manchester.
The hotel in question is the BH Mallorca Resort, where an 18-year-old British holidaymaker was reportedly gang-raped on August 14. In that case, eight men were arrested, with six in custody in Mallorca and two expected to be extradited from France. The suspects included individuals from France and Switzerland. Spanish authorities revealed that the alleged gang members did not know each other prior to the incident.
This incident is part of a series of reported rapes and sexual attacks involving British tourists in Europe this summer. Victim Support, a charity organization, expressed concern over these reports, emphasizing that women should be able to enjoy their time without fear of such attacks. The Foreign Office has indicated that it has enhanced training for its staff to better support victims in such situations.
