POLICE have arrested two men accused of robbing and sexually assaulting a British tourist in Magaluf.
The pair are said to have ripped the 25-year-old woman’s dress and underwear and stolen her designer watch and jewellery before fleeing the scene as police arrived.
She was taken to hospital for a routine examination before making a statement to the Civil Guard who are now leading the ongoing investigation.
A local paper in Majorca described the incident as a rape and a Civil Guard source said the woman had allegedly been sexually assaulted.
One police officer was left injured when the suspects resisted arrest and is now off work.
The incident happened in the early hours of Friday morning in a street in Magaluf, a short walk from the famous Punta Ballena party strip.
