    A British teenager was allegedly gang raped in tourist hotspot Magaluf with her attackers said to have filmed the assault.

    Five French tourists and a Swiss holidaymaker have been arrested after the alleged assault in a hotel in the resort town on the Spanish island of Majorca.

    Local reports claimed that the men took the 18-year-old woman back to their hotel after she met them at a party on Monday (August 14).

    She reportedly fled into the streets whilst crying after the gang, all in their 20s, allegedly sexually assaulted her. She was found by a security guard who called police, reports said.

    Police reportedly found videos of the alleged assault on at least one of the men's phones, according to local press.

    The alleged victim gave officers a description of the suspects. Six men were arrested and remanded into custody after making a court appearance in Palma.

    The men were pictured being escorted by police in handcuffs into the building in the Majorcan capital. Mail Online reported that none of them has been formally charged as yet, as the investigation is ongoing.

    But yesterday (Tuesday, August 15), a Palma judge ordered the six men to be sent to prison without bail, according to Magaluf day Bulletin.

    The British woman was taken to hospital. Local media said grip marks were found on her arms. Detectives have reviewed CCTV footage of the hotel entrance as part of their investigation.

    The probe, led by a team of Civil Guard specialists, is expected to take several months to complete. A spokesman for the force said: “I can confirm we are investigating an alleged gang rape at a hotel in Magaluf.

    “We were alerted by the hotel in the early hours of Monday after the alleged victim raised the alarm.

    "One set of officers took her to hospital so she could be examined by a doctor. Another team of officers set about trying to locate the alleged aggressors. They were arrested over the following hours.

    "The investigation is ongoing. Five of the men arrested are French and the sixth suspect is a Swiss national. They are all in their 20s."
