MAGALUF, Majorca – A British tourist had to be wrestled to the ground by nearly a dozen police officers after a bite attack on tourists in the notorious Spanish party resort where a teenager performed sex acts on more than 20 men.
Officers were call to tackle the drugged-up Brit in Magaluf, Majorca, after a lifeguard saw him chasing after people on the beach and biting them.
He then risked injury by running towards a motorboat with its engine going by a jetty.
Police had to call for reinforcements after arriving to calm him down and being attacked themselves.
Ten officers were needed to restrain him in the end.
And a doctor had to sedate him after he was tied to a stretcher before he could be taken away.
The 28-year-old reportedly confessed afterwards he had taken a cocktail of different drugs.
Authorities suspect he may have taken an experimental drug dubbed Cannibal which is similar to one linked to a gruesome attack on a homeless Miami man.
The drug is also being linked to an incident in the early hours of Wednesday morning in Magaluf when a 17-year-old English girl had to be brought under control and taken to hospital by a five-strong medical response team after biting other revellers.
Friends claimed afterwards she had only had two drinks and taken no drugs and officers were probing whether her drinks had been spiked.
The incident happened in Punta Ballena near to the bar where an 18-year-old British girl was filmed performing sex acts on 23 men.
She is said to have agreed to the sordid stunt – which has made headlines around the world – in return for a free holiday, only to be told afterwards it was the name of a cocktail.
Detectives said last week they believed dealers in San Antonio on neighbouring Ibiza were peddling the mysterious mind-bending narcotic to young holidaymakers.
Officers trying to clear the streets of the mystery drug, blamed for a recent attack in which a British tourist had to be handcuffed after biting a policeman, have branded it ‘Cannibal.’
It is thought to be similar to bath salts, which contain a powerful stimulant called MDPV.
They were blamed for the horrific attack by Rudy Eugene on homeless Ronald Poppo, 65, in Miami in June 2012, although subsequent tests only showed up traces of marijuana.
