British teens ‘sexually assaulted TWICE at Turkish resort but hotel staff blame them for looking for group sex’

A group of British teenagers say they were forced to flee a Turkish resort over fears for their safety after they were sexually assaulted twice.

The four women said local police didn’t bother to help them and hotel staff laughed and blamed them, claiming they were “looking for group sex”.

One of the 19-year-olds was allegedly groped at a beach and a second member of the group – who were on their first overseas trip together – claimed she was sexually assaulted by a hotel worker.

After reporting the allegations, British Embassy staff advised the teens to leave the area due to its reputation for sex attacks on Westerners, said a mum of one of the women.

The women had been staying at the Savk Hotel in Alanya, on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, after booking the trip through lastminute.com.

Hotel staff accused them of “drinking” and “looking for group sex” when they complained to police and the travel website.

A mum of one of the women told the Sun: “They’ve been out there on their first holiday away together as friends abroad, and for this to happen to them is just heartbreaking.

“It has been so stressful for all the parents back home too because we want to help them but we couldn’t.”

She said the teens racked up phone bills worth hundreds of pounds trying to sort things out.

Instead, they took a statement from their male friend, they claimed.

The teens booked new accommodation through lastminute.com but it was cancelled as they travelled to the hotel. It was refunded and once they arrived the manager gave them a place to stay.

A spokeswoman for lastminute.com said the website has removed Savk Hotel “as a precaution” while the claims are investigated. More on Mirror
