British man, 26, is arrested on suspicion of raping woman in Mallorca hotel and ‘headbutted’ one of the officers as he was detained
A British man has been arrested in Magaluf on suspicion of raping a woman in a hotel room on the party island of Mallorca.
The 26-year-old man allegedly resisted arrest and headbutted one of the Guardia Civil agents who were called to the scene.
The alleged sexual assault took place in a room of a hotel in the popular resort of Santa Ponsa near Magaluf.
A friend of the woman who was allegedly the victim of the sexual assault alerted a receptionist who called police at around 7pm on Friday.
The friend told officers the man had tried to force her into the room after raping her boyfriend.

The Guardia Civil, which made the arrest, could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
It was not immediately clear whether the suspect has yet appeared in court and whether he has been remanded in custody or released on bail pending an ongoing investigation.
The nationality of the raped woman has not been disclosed.
In July 2022, a British tourist was arrested at the party resort after a woman ‘blacked out’ and woke up to find him ‘on top of her’.
Magaluf has long been known as a major party destination for people across Europe, particularly British.
But its reputation has taken a turn for the worse as authorities in Magaluf and all over Majorca are increasingly fed up with the behavior of British tourists visiting the island.
Physical assault and drunken, shady behavior are rife, and the party resort has also uncovered a large number of claims of sexual assault in recent years.
