On Feb 4th, a band of masked gunmen invaded a beachfront home and raped six visiting spanish women
It was unclear whether the group of 12 Spaniards had been targeted because of their nationality. The women endured a three-hour ordeal at a rented house on a tranquil beach, dotted with restaurants, small hotels and rental homes. Most of the six men women live in Mexico City, and were on a vacation. The five attackers burst into the house and held the group at gunpoint, said Acapulco Mayor Luis Walton. They tied up the six men with phone cords and bathing suit straps and then raped the six Spanish women. Walton said the Spaniards had been “escorted,” apparently under police protection, out of Acapulco.
Guerrero state Attorney General Martha Garzon told local media that the attackers’ motive was “robbery, and to have fun,” and they drank mescal they found at the house after committing the rapes.
