A group of gunmen broke into a beach bungalow on Monday around 2 a.m. near Acapulco, Mexico and raped six women tourists, CNN said. The gunmen tied up the women with their bikini straps and telephone cords, they also tied up their partners so they could not intervene in the attack, Daily Mail reported. The victims were all spanish nationals ranging from 20 to 34 in age, CNN said. One women was spared from rape because she identified herself as Mexican, and the attackers did not touch her, Daily Mail reports. The attack motive was robbery as the gunmen fled after the attack with their victims' cash, credit cards and cell phones, Daily Mail said. The victims were all from Mexico City and were escorted out of Acapulco with police protection on Wednesday, Daily Mail said. Acapulco's mayor condemned the crime and promised to find those responsible, investigations are still underway, Daily Mail reported. Military checkpoints have been set up to try and apprehend five men that authorities believe are responsible for the attack, CNN said. The women are currently in a safe place and undergoing counseling, CNN repots.
