The prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann investigation allegedly boasted to a friend about breaking into a room full of sleeping British girls and performing a sex act. 

Christian Brueckner reportedly told a close friend he stripped down naked before breaking into the holiday home in Portugal. 

The convicted sex offender only fled when one of the teens woke up terrified and began to alert her friends, it’s claimed.

A close friend of Christian Brueckner (pictured left) has claimed he once boasted about sneaking into a Portuguese holiday home and performing a sex act naked. Brueckner is the prime suspect in the disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann (right in 2007)

The close friend broke his silence about the alleged incident after seeing this week’s police searches in Germany, the Mirror reports.

German investigators believe Madeleine was murdered and named Brueckner as their main suspect last month.

Brueckner, 43, already has a string of convictions including the sexual assault of a six-year-old girl and the rape of a woman in her 70s in 2005.

He is currently in German custody on suspicion of of kidnapping three-year-old Madeleine from a holiday flat in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007. 

Police spent several days this week digging up his allotment near Hannover to search a secret cellar on the vegetable plot.

They excavated the site, using sniffer dogs, ground penetrating radar and drones.

They reportedly found the secret cellar under a stone slab and took away the concrete foundations of his old shack in skips.

The close friend told the Mirror: ‘The strangest thing he ever told me was about breaking into a room where four teenagers from Britain were sleeping on the sofa and floor.

‘He was naked and had left his clothes outside and he was masturbating. When one woke up and tried to wake the others up he panicked and ran out.

‘He said he ran naked through the town. He told it like a funny story.’

The friend said he didn’t know for certain if the incident happened in Praia da Luz, where Madeleine disappeared – but he believes it was in the same area.

He told how he befriended Brueckner at a kiosk the suspect owned in North Germany in 2013.

Brueckner is currently in prison in Germany serving a sentence for drugs offences and should be starting his sentence for rape shortly but his lawyers have appealed the conviction on a legal technicality and the European Court of Justice will deliver its decision later this year.

Earlier this week, the Mail revealed Christian Brueckner was filmed at the wheel of a battered VW campervan just weeks before German police believed he used it to kidnap the three-year-old girl.

In the footage, obtained exclusively by MailOnline, Brueckner can be seen laughing and joking as he squats down in the back of the van looking at a map.

He has previously denied involvement in the McCann case.

His lawyer Friedrich Fulscher, who described the searches of the allotments as ‘pure desperation’, has said he does not think he will be charged.
