AFTER an exhaustive investigation, the National Police have arrested two men who are accused of setting fire to a brothel last moth on the Paseo Marítimo in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
As reported by the police, when the brothel, located on s’Aigo Dolça, closed for the day, the men burgled the premises and then deliberately set it ablaze to erase all traces of evidence.
After the incident, officers launched an investigation to find the culprits, with evidence pointing towards the two men. They discovered that the men had been robbed when they were enjoying the services offered by the brothel. Evidently enraged, in an act of revenge they returned a few hours later and forced entry inside to steal a large amount of cash and valuables, before they committed their arson.
The men, both of Swedish nationality, have been detained in custody where it is expected that they will appear in court next week. As Euro Weekly News understands, no one was injured in the fire which was quickly put out by the Fire Brigade.
