British girl, 15, is raped at a hotel sauna in Majorca during family holiday

Police are hunting a man who raped a British teenager at a hotel sauna in Majorca.

The 15-year-old tourist, who was on holiday with her family, was alone at around 4pm on Monday when the sex attacker entered the sauna and forced himself on her.

Well-placed sources said the incident happened at the four-star Best Delta Hotel which is set in a family-friendly neighbourhood with cliff top walks in Llucmajor about 20 minutes from the Majorcan capital Palma.

A British holidaymaker was injured at the same hotel in April last year after falling off a cliff while he was taking a selfie.

Police are working on the theory that the aggressor had been watching the teenager and waited until she was alone before targeting her. 

The youngster alerted hotel staff immediately after the sex attack and was taken to Son Llatzer Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma for examination.

A spokesman for the Civil Guard confirmed the force was hunting an alleged rapist who targeted a British teenage holidaymaker, although he did not identify the hotel where it happened.

A source close to the investigation said: ‘We are taking this extremely seriously and all efforts are being made to catch this man.‘

The force did not release a description of the rapist, although he has been described as foreign.

Staff at the hotel, which is part of a chain of hotels called Best Hotels, declined to comment.

No-one was immediately available for comment at the group‘s HQ.

Hotel workers are understood to have been questioned as part of the ongoing police operation.

It is not known if the British girl and her family are still at the hotel.
