Mexican authorities says several people have been detained for investigation in connection with last week’s rape of six Spanish tourists in Acapulco, a crime that further blemished the reputation of this troubled pacific resort.

Guerrero state officials declined to say how many suspects were in custody.

Gov. Angel Aguirre said two of those detained were also were being investigated in connection with another rape case. He said the two had been identified by victims in that case, but he added that no identifications had been made by victims in the rape of the Spanish women.

The Feb. 4 attack on the Spaniards began when a band of masked gunmen broke into a beachfront home before dawn.

The attackers tied up the six men at the house, and then raped the six Spanish women there. A seventh woman, a Mexican national, was not harmed during the hours-long assault.
