She was allegedly glassed by a friend.

A soldier is in a serious condition in hospital after she was allegedly glassed by a friend in a nightclub in Majorca.

The victim, named locally as Scottish woman Sarah Ann Garrity, 22, was seriously injured in the incident at Banana Disco, Punta Ballena, Magaluf, in the early hours of Monday.

The Sun has named the woman accused of attacking her as Sydney Cole and claims Garrity was slashed in the neck with a glass bottle.

Both women are understood to be off-duty soldiers.

A witness said: “I couldn’t look it was so horrible. It was horrific. There was blood everywhere. It was a huge gash.”

A Guardia Civil spokesman said the woman was taken to hospital where her condition is described as serious.

The other woman was arrested in connection with the incident.

She appeared in court in Palma on Monday and was remanded in custody. Reporters at the scene said she was escorted to the court in handcuffs.

A British Army spokeswoman said: “We are aware of an incident involving two off-duty soldiers in Spain.

“An investigation by the local Spanish police is ongoing and it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
