British girl, 17, is ‘raped in Majorca by a ‘famous’ actor and a musician who made her shower to wash away evidence after sex attack in their hotel’
- The 17-year-old told police the sex attack took place in a hotel in Andratx
- She alleges she was raped by a pair of Vietnamese artists she had met nearby
- A respected local paper reported the teenager was forced to scrub herself clean
- The suspects were arrested at the hotel on Saturday morning and have been banned from leaving the country while the investigation continues
A British teenager has reportedly been raped on the holiday island of Majorca by two men described as ‘a famous Vietnamese actor and musician.’
The 17-year-old told police the sex attack took place in a hotel in Andratx in the south-west of the island last weekend after she met the artists in a nearby restaurant and started socialising with them.
The girl’s aunt is said to have alerted police after being contacted by her relative.
Respected island newspaper Ultima Hora reported the teenager told officers the men, aged 37 and 42, had made her shower after the alleged rape to eliminate evidence that could incriminate them.
The paper described the alleged rapists as ‘an actor and musician with a long professional career in the south east Asian country.’
They were arrested at the unnamed hotel in Andratx in the early hours of Saturday morning, and have now been released on bail but banned from leaving Spain pending an ongoing criminal probe.
The British teenager is believed to have left the island with her family after ratifying her police statement in front of the same judge.

Ultima Hora says the men and the girl were staying in separate hotels in the municipality of Andratx and got into conversation at a nearby restaurant before she agreed to go to the place where the Vietnamese pair were staying after spending time on the beach with them.
She was examined by doctors at Son Espases Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma as part of standard protocol before making her police statement.
Neither of the two men arrested has yet been named. As well as being banned from leaving Spain they have also been asked to surrender their passports.
Local reports said they declined to answer questions when they appeared before the investigating judge shortly after their arrests.
It is not yet known if they were formally questioned by police before being taken to a closed court hearing.

A police source confirmed last night they had been called to deal with an alleged rape at a hotel in Andratx.
The source said: ‘Two Vietnamese nationals were arrested in the earlier hours of Saturday morning and the investigation is ongoing.’
Court officials were not immediately available for comment.
It is unclear weather the 37-year-old actor and the 42-year-old musician held over the alleged hotel sex attack were on holiday in Majorca or had travelled to the island for work reasons.
