Four Brits Stabbed And One Arrested After Huge Brawl In Magaluf
A fifth Brit was then arrested after violence broke out in the Punta Ballena area of the town in the early hours of this morning.
The stabbings happened after one of the men chased the person they thought had stolen their property and held him while the police were called.
However, during that altercation four men received 'non serious' stab injuries.
One man was then arrested and local media reported that he, alongside two African street vendors, had allegedly conspired to steal mobile phones and wallets from the others.
Despite those reports, the police confirmed that whilst a 25-year-old man had been arrested for stabbing four people, they had received no information regarding the alleged robberies.
It is thought that the man will appear in court before Tuesday.
Police were caught on camera taking the suspect - wearing a red t-shirt and shorts - towards a squad car while confined in handcuffs after they had stood guard around him outside a strip club.
Blood could also be seen on the pavement and the whole street had been cordoned off to allow the police to carry out their investigations and for ambulances to get through to treat those injured.
A man - who identified himself as the friend of one of the men stabbed - shouted out as the man was led off by the cops.
He said: "I hope you didn't do it because if you did you're in trouble brother, you're in trouble.
"That's my friend, you stabbed my friend, my friend's in hospital."
A large crowd of locals and tourists looked on as the man was led away.
A recent report revealed that the town - a British tourist hotspot - is a hotbed of street crime and muggings.
Local media outlet Ultimahora.es said that the town - particularly the nightlife area of Punta Ballena - is a 'paradise' for criminals who pose as street-sellers and commit as many as 100 robberies and thefts each night.
One person said: "They are real specialists in stealing. They do it in a matter of seconds and most victims don't report it."
The same newspaper reported: "At dawn, the same [street] vendors become expert thieves.
"There are robberies or fights every moment."
