Brutal violence hits Magaluf’s notorious Punta Ballena strip: Brit, 29, is arrested after fight between two groups of men breaks out when someone tries to help KO’d victim of ANOTHER brawl
- A 29-year-old British national has been arrested following a brutal fight in Spain
A 29-year-old Brit has been arrested in Spain in connection with a brutal fight at Magaluf’s notorious party strip, the Punta Ballena.
The man, who has not been named, was held on suspicion of crimes including wrongdoing following the clash between two groups of youngsters.
Footage shows the youngsters swinging at each other in a frenzied fight that saw one man knocked unconscious and others kneed in the face.
It was not immediately clear which of the men filmed was the British national , described locally as the ‘main alleged instigator’ of the violence.
The fight ensued after a man tried to move a partygoer knocked out in another brawl, with blood seen coming from his head as he lay face-down on the pavement.
Bystanders tried to stop the man from lifting the unconscious youngster from the floor, apparently worried it might make the situation worse before medics arrived.
But another reveller wearing a grey t-shirt took matters into his own hands, punching the man in the face and causing him to drop the unconscious young person’s head on the ground.
Video shows how more youngsters waded in to fight in the brawl, with the partygoers frantically attacking each other with punches and kicks to their bodies.

The two warring groups – two well-built men on one side and three smaller partygoers on the other – can be seen pummelling each other in front of a fast food takeaway joint.
At one point, one of the brawlers found himself outnumbered at the entrance to the takeaway and being put in a headlock by three revellers before being punched in the stomach.
But his friend, who had been filmed moments earlier unleashing a powerful right hook to the face of the man trying to lift the injured reveller from the ground, came running across and swung his right fist at one of the youngsters.
The blow knocked the youngster onto the counter of the pizza and burger takeaway and allowed the two more powerfully-built men to chase the others away as they fled the scene.
The disturbing scenes occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning.
It was not immediately clear this morning if any British or Irish tourists had been involved in the orgy of violence.
Police could not be contacted to confirm whether they had made any arrests, but no-one involved is understood to have alerted local law-enforcement.
In May five police officers were injured during a mass brawl in Magaluf involving around 50 people.
Ten people ended up being arrested following the incident near a popular nightspot called Panama Jack.
One initial local report pointed to the incident being sparked by a fight between a group of North African youngsters and Spaniards – but a group of Portuguese holidaymakers were later described as the main troublemakers.
