Hunt for Magaluf taxi driver after Brit tourist, 17, ‘sexually assaulted in cab’

A manhunt is underway to find a taxi driver in the Spanish party resort of Magaluf after a British teenage boy was allegedly sexually assaulted.

The shocking incident happened in the early hours in the back of a taxi in the early hours of this morning (August 11).

According to local media reports, the youngster went to a police station with his mum, where a statement was made.

He claimed that the taxi driver began touching him up as they headed from party strip of Punta Ballena to the tourist's hotel before demanding he perform a lewd sex act on him.

The incident led to a tussle inside the taxi, which ended with the driver physically assaulting the teenager, who hurt his head on the cab door as he fled the vehicle.

Civil Guard officers are now trying to identify the alleged aggressor.

A spokesman for the force confirmed this morning that an allegation had been made and “we are investigating”.

The news of the assault comes a few days after it emerged a British man had been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting another UK tourist at a hotel in Magaluf.

The 48-year-old man is said to have approached the female holidaymaker from behind and put his hands down the 20-year-old woman's trousers before touching her private parts.

The alleged victim, who was staying at the same unnamed hotel as the male holidaymaker, told cops he was a stranger she had never met before.

A hotel receptionist alerted police who arrested the suspect shortly after arriving at the hotel.

Last month two male Irish holidaymakers were arrested on suspicion of raping a British woman in a hotel in the same area of Spain.

The pair were held at Palma Airport on July 19 as they were preparing to board a flight to Dublin. They were remanded in prison pending an ongoing investigation.
