A British couple was attacked Friday by security guards at the four-star BH Mallorca Hotel in Magaluf, a major tourist resort on the Spanish island of Majorca, Metro reported.
A BH Mallorca Hotel spokesman told Metro that the two were not staying at the hotel but visiting for the day. He said they refused to leave at closing time.
Jakub Matejko of Manchester, England, witnessed the attack and posted a video of the incident on Facebook, saying, “I'm so disgusted with the staff SAFE 4 u working at the BH Mallorca hotel ... guards picked up on a girl because she threw a plastic cup at one of them, the guy went up to her and slaps her so her boyfriend trying to protect her jump in and end up with broken head and bleeding from eyes.”
The male victim was a DJ named Alex Henderson, Metro reported.
BH Mallorca Hotel management told Metro that they are investigating the incident.
“We do not condone the use of violence, and we have been working with local authorities since last night to establish exactly what happened before and after what is shown on the film that lead up to this incident,” a hotel spokesman told Metro.
