A group of monkeys are accused of attacking a woman and removing her bikini before touching her inappropriately.

The tourist of the United Kingdom, traveled to Spain, and was thrilled when she arrived in Gibraltar. She never imagined that she would be fondled by a group of wild macaques.

23-year-old Melissa Hart was watching the wild monkeys at a zoo in Gibraltar, when two of them approached her and started pulling her clothes.

It did not take long for the monkeys to rip off her bikini. Other tourists looked on and laughed as she struggled to break free.

“I felt totally helpless as these two monkeys grabbed and touched my most private parts. Then, one of them pulled off my bikini top,” Hart said.

“I was being sexually assaulted and these people all thought it was a big joke,” she added. A zoo warden finally heard her screaming and came rescued her.

Angered by the attack, Hart tried to file a police complaint against the monkeys. However, the police did not seem to take her seriously.

They also made light of the situation. “Do you think you could pick out your attackers in a line-up?” One officer asked.
