Twenty-five-year-old Nelson Delgado is alleged to have pulled a knife on a group of Brits he believed were responsible for glassing his brother earlier on that night.

The stabbings are said to have taken place outside a pub in Magaluf at 4am Friday morning, the UK’s Mail Online reported.

Twenty Brits were involved in a brawl which ended up with five of them in hospital, two of whom are critical with stab wounds to their back and abdomen.

Delgado, who is thought to have grown up in Britain, has been remanded in custody but has not yet been charged with any crime.

Magaluf is one of Spain’ most popular holiday destinations for young Britons looking for sun, sea and sex.

The alcohol-fuelled nature of their trips is the main reason behind a recent spate of tragic falls from hotel balconies.

Nine people have died in Majorca this summer in what the Spanish press is referring to as a growing trend in “balconing”.

Balconing usually involves either jumping from one balcony to another or leaping from a balcony into a hotel swimming pool.

Drug trafficking and sexual assaults are also on the up in Majorca’s ‘low-cost’ holiday resorts.

Local Majorca Police and Spanish Civil Guard officers have had to increase their night patrols this summer to try and restore order in an increasingly wild Magaluf.

Magaluf: Parts of resort may be closed, Spanish authorities warn

Parts of the Spanish resort of Magaluf on the island of Mallorca may be closed down after crowds of young tourists were caught on video running amok without wearing masks or respecting social distancing, authorities said.

Footage of rowdy British and German tourists at the weekend went viral on social media, sparking anger from Spaniards who feared the holidaymakers may spread coronavirus. 

Lawyers for the Balearic Islands government, which governs Mallorca where Magaluf is located, are studying ways to close down the street and bars around Punta Ballena in Platja de Palma. 

The measure would reassure countries like Britain and Germany, whose tourists form the largest groups by nationality to come to the resort, that Magaluf is a safe destination, reported Diario de Mallorca newspaper.

It will form a package of tougher measures, which are due to be unveiled on Tuesday by the regional government, to stamp out loutish behaviour. 

“Of course we want tourists to come, but not carry out these excesses,” said Nati Francés, the deputy mayor of Calvià, which includes Magaluf.

“We want tourists who enjoy nightlife, yes, but we do not want an alcohol theme park.”

The measures may also apply to Sant Antoni de Portmany in Ibiza. 

Face masks are compulsory in the Balearic Islands in all public or private places, including bars and restaurants and can only be removed whilst eating and drinking. Anyone flouting the law faces a fine of €100.

Wearing a mask will not be necessary at the beach, at swimming pools, when playing sports or playing a wind instrument.
