An England international rugby star has been arrested on suspicion of the rape of a teenager, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The player, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was held on Sunday following reports of a sexual assault at a nightclub the night before.
He was arrested, along with a 41-year-old woman, who was being held on suspicion of administering a substance with intent to cause a sexual offence. Both the rugby player and woman have since been released on bail while detectives continue their investigations into the alleged incident.
“Officers were called shortly before 11am on Sunday, January 9 to a report of a sexual assault on a female,” a police spokesperson said.
“A woman in her late teens was reported to have been sexually assaulted.
“A man was arrested on suspicion of rape and a woman was arrested on suspicion of administering a substance with intent to cause a sexual offence.
“Both have since been released on bail as enquiries continue and a number of lines of enquiry are being followed up by detectives.”
