A 66-year-old Swedish tourist in Majorca has been arrested for sexually assaulting a hotel cleaner who had to run to the balcony to shout for help.
The unnamed tourist was visiting the popular resort of Can Pastilla in the district of Playa de Palma in Majorca in the eastern Spanish region of the Balearic Islands for a short holiday.
According to local media, he is accused of attacking a cleaner in one of the hotel rooms.
The National Police said that the victim was cleaning a hotel room when the Swedish suspect approached her enquiring about one of her colleagues.
The cleaner informed the 66-year-old tourist that her colleague was not working and he allegedly closed the door behind him and groped the woman, touching her breasts, according to reports.
The frightened cleaner allegedly managed to break free of the suspect’s clutches and she ran to the balcony where she shouted for help.
Local media said that colleagues heard her appeal and called the authorities.
The Swedish tourist has since been then arrested for sexually assaulting the worker as the investigation continues.
