ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Six men detained in the recent rape of six Spanish tourists in Acapulco have confessed to the crimes, authorities said on Wednesday.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said prosecutors have gathered evidence against another suspect in the attack, which has further tainted the reputation of the Pacific resort, already damaged by gruesome beheadings and mutilations by drug cartels. The seventh suspect remains at large.

The six men gave a complete recount of the Feb. 4 attacks, which took place in a beach house on the outskirts of Acapulco where 12 Spanish tourists and a Mexican woman were staying, Murillo Karam told reporters.

"We have those six suspects, who have confessed," he said. "I can tell you with all seriousness that this case has been solved."

The men range in ages from 16 to 30. Murillo Karam said there is "plenty of evidence" of their role in the attack.

He also said there are eight more men in custody suspected in a separate rape attack last November.
