THREE men suspected of gang raping a British teenage girl in Magaluf have been accused of “deliberately getting her drunk”.
Police are awaiting the results of hospital tests to determine if alcohol was added to the 18-year-old.
The new development came to light today when it was reported that three of the suspects had “deliberately” got the 18-year-old drunk, apparently with the intention of taking advantage of her, before inviting strangers over for “free sex” after they got her back in Hotel had brought room “half unconscious”.
The case update comes after two of the suspects were arrested in France on Monday.
Their extradition to Mallorca is expected to take place in around two weeks unless the two oppose their forced repatriation and delay the process.
The first six men arrested, five French and one Swiss, aged 18 to 26, are currently behind bars in Spain after being remanded in custody by a coroner eight days ago.
Newspaper Ultimate Hora citing a police report, reported that the British teenager was unable to fight back because she was “nearly unconscious” after being invited for a drink by three of the suspects during a night out at the party area Punta Ballena.
The outlet said leaked police reports and court documents all pointed to the men’s aim in inviting them to free drinks was to “abuse the female tourist”.
One of the trio allegedly walked down a hotel corridor after “sexually assaulting” the teenager with his friends in a hotel room when they got back to the hotel, and encouraged strangers returning from their own night out to have “free sex” with her to have.
Spanish police confirmed on Monday night that the two suspects they were still looking for in the alleged gang rape had been arrested in France, as they confirmed many of the men under investigation were foreigners who didn’t know each other.
The two arrests came on Sunday morning after Spanish police officers found the men had flown to Germany before crossing the border en route to the French city of Strasbourg.
Civil Guard officials say their investigation is now considered closed, although the judicial investigation is ongoing and will take at least several months before a judge decides whether there is sufficient evidence to charge the eight men who have been arrested.
Earlier this week it was reported that the first suspect in the Magaluf gang rape was arrested after Spanish police made him answer the ‘stolen’ mobile phone of the allegedly targeted British teenager.
The young French woman picked up the phone and then went with two vacation friends to the lobby of the hotel where the sexual assault allegedly took place, unaware that the teenager and the investigators supervising her were waiting for them.
All three were arrested on the spot before the other three suspects could be located in the hours that followed after the 18-year-old gave police their descriptions.
The woman’s phone was stolen by the men during the alleged gang rape, it said.
It was also revealed over the weekend that the judge, who refused the six suspects bail and remanded them to custody pending an ongoing criminal investigation, had concluded the British teenager had suffered “truly humiliating and degrading treatment”. , and called the men’s claims that sex was consensual “utterly absurd.”
Cell phone recordings of the alleged sex assault, which the police confiscated from the suspects’ cell phones and handed over to the investigating judge, are said to have shown that the men “had fun and laughed”.
The six suspects are said to have had consensual sex with the British teenager after meeting her at a party.
BH Mallorca Resort, the hotel where the alleged sexual assault took place, has said it fully cooperated with the police and offered its assistance to the unnamed holidaymakers.
A hotel security guard reportedly came to the rescue of the 18-year-old Briton after finding her sobbing on the lobby floor.
He called the police after finding her around 5 a.m. Monday. He recalled just walking in for his morning shift and described the police response as very quick and efficient.
According to unconfirmed local reports, a doctor’s examination at the hospital revealed finger marks on the British teenager’s arms.
The men being held in jail and awaiting trial have not yet been charged with a crime, as is common in Spain, where formal charges are only laid shortly before the trial.
As of this writing, they are “investigators” in an ongoing criminal investigation, which means they are officially under investigation.
