British tourist ‘is raped in Magaluf after agreeing to go back to Irish holidaymaker’s apartment’
- The British woman said the Irishman had forced himself on her at an apartment
- She said she had agreed to go back with him but had not consented to have sex
- The Irishman was arrested but the British tourist has declined to press charges
An Irish holidaymaker has been arrested on suspicion of raping a British tourist in Magaluf, but freed after a court appearance when she declined to press charges.
The 22-year-old was held after the woman told officers he had forced himself on her at holiday apartments in the party resort.
She said she had agreed to go back to the unnamed apartments with him but had not consented to sex.
She was taken to Son Espases Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma for a medical examination before his arrest.
The unnamed Irish holidaymaker was released after appearing at a duty court in Palma yesterday.
In a separate case, an Irish teenager told police from hospital on Sunday that he had been raped by two men after being kicked out of a brothel in Magaluf.
He said the men were waiting for him when he was kicked out of the sex club via a back exit after being enticed inside by two prostitutes who offered him a striptease and realising he did not have any money.
The 19-year-old told cops he did not want to press charges because he ‘felt ashamed’ at what had happened.
Hospital staff called police in because of the nature of his injuries and he agreed to speak to them informally but declined to make a formal statement.
