Two Irish nationals have been arrested for raping a British tourist in a hotel in Magaluf.
The incident happened in the early hours of 19th July when the woman called the police to say that she had been sexually assaulted by two men in a hotel room in Calvia in Magaluf.
When officers arrived, she confirmed that two men had sexually abused her, and was taken to the Son Espases Hospital by the policemen.
The Guardia Civil confirmed to the Madrid Metropolitan that the woman had been raped.
There was a group specialised in dealing with sex crimes who identified two men and discovered that they were no longer in the hotel where the attack took place.
They had apparently left and were in the process of returning home to Ireland.
In a statement obtained by Newsflash from the police, the Guardia Civil said: “The officers then went to the Palma airport to locate the two individuals, and after finding them in the boarding area waiting for the flight they were arrested as they were about to head back to Dublin.”
The pair have now been brought before a court which confirmed they are to be held in investigative custody.
The woman involved has not been named and is currently being looked after by a specialist team from the Spanish Civil Guard who collected her from the hospital.
Police said that they are working with her to make sure the complaint is filed and would then be taking her to Palma airport so that she could head back to the UK.
