England Rugby International Arrested On Suspicion Of Raping A Teenager In A Nightclub

An England rugby union international has been arrested on suspicion of the rape of a teenager.

The Daily Mail have reported that the player, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested on Sunday.

He was held following the report of an attack at a nightclub the day before.

A 41-year-old woman has also been arrested on suspicion of administering a substance with intent to cause a sexual offence. 

Both have now been released on bail while investigations continue.

A police spokesperson said: “Officers were called shortly before 11am on Sunday January 9 to a report of a sexual assault on a female.

“A woman in her late teens was reported to have been sexually assaulted.

“Both have since been released on bail as enquiries continue and a number of lines of enquiry are being followed up by detectives.”
