when the British holidaymakers were walking along the main promenade. One of the group of five is said to have spotted a wallet in one of the Brit’s back pocket and attacked him whilst trying to steal it.
But the victim fought back, receiving a head wound when litter bins were ripped out and thrown at the pair. He was then pushed into the water and a similar threat was made to the second Brit. Some of them are said to have recorded the incident on their mobile phones. The attackers ran off towards the Cathedral and have not yet been found. Passers-by pulled the British man out of the water. He was described as “very frightened” with blood pouring from his head wound. Local residents say the security of tourists in Mallorca has to be a top priority for the local government and more money should be spent.
