A FRENCH tourist has been arrested after a British holidaymaker was allegedly raped in Majorca.
The woman believes her drink was spiked on a night out in Palma on the Spanish island before she was allegedly attacked.

"She got into a conversation and they had a couple of beers.
"From that moment on she doesn’t remember anything, only that she woke up the following day at 8.30am in another hotel which wasn’t her one, dressed but without her underwear on."
The spokesman said the alleged victim immediately alerted the hotel reception – who then called the cops.
"The woman was taken to hospital where a series of tests, including toxicology tests, were performed to obtain as much information as possible," he added.

The latest incident follows a number of rape arrests in Majorca over the summer.
An 18-year-old British woman was allegedly gang-raped by by six male tourists in August at "party hotel" BH Mallorca – 400 metres from Magaluf's renowned strip.
Five French and one Swiss tourist were arrested over the attack while two more suspects were held in France on European arrest warrants.
Less than a fortnight later, three Brit holidaymakers were arrested on suspicion of raping a woman at another Magaluf hotel.
The trio were held as they tried to board a flight to Manchester.
