British woman, 20, ‘is sexually assaulted by UK tourist staying at the same hotel’ in Magaluf
- The alleged victim told the cops she had never met the man before
A British man has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting another UK tourist at a hotel in Magaluf.
The 48-year-old man is said to have approached the female holidaymaker from behind and put his hands down the 20-year-old woman’s trousers before touching her private parts.
The alleged victim, who was staying at the same unnamed hotel as the male holidaymaker, told police he was a stranger she had never met before.
A hotel receptionist alerted police who arrested the suspect shortly after arriving at the hotel.
The local town hall-employed police who were the first to respond have now passed the case over to the Civil Guard.

It was not immediately clear today if the suspect has already appeared in court and whether he has been released on bail by an investigating judge or remanded in custody.
Last month two male Irish holidaymakers were arrested on suspicion of raping a British woman in a hotel in Magaluf.
The pair were held at Palma Airport on July 19 as they were preparing to board a flight to Dublin.
They were remanded in prison pending an ongoing investigation.
On July 9 a British holidaymaker was arrested at Palma Airport after allegedly raping his girlfriend at their hotel on the island.
The 38-year-old was held as he tried to fly home after his 24-year-old partner went to police to say he had forced himself on her in the bathroom of their hotel room.
The couple are said to have been staying at a three-star hotel near the resort of Magaluf.
In May a British tourist was arrested and thrown in jail on suspicion of raping a female friend of his son’s at a hotel in Magaluf.
The holidaymaker was also held at Palma Airport after allegedly packing his bags and trying to leave the island in a hurry hours later.
The woman, also believed to be British, told detectives she was forced to have sex after falling asleep in her friend’s room which had an internal door leading into his dad’s room.
