An English Premier League footballer was on Wednesday morning arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment and rape, reported the UK’s DailyMail on Thursday night.
According to the internationally recognized publication, the player’s identity is known but cannot be revealed due to legal reasons.
The incident is alleged to have taken place at his home last month.
The player was arrested there before being released as the police investigation continues.
UK police on Thursday also issued a statement confirming the age of the suspect, and that officers had arrested him ‘on suspicion of rape and false imprisonment’.
The statement added that the unnamed footballer has since been released ‘under investigation pending further enquiries.’
Who is this player? Your guess is as good as ours.
For now, just like the rest of the football world, we can only speculate.
We shall publish a subsequent update on this story once the name (eventually) leaks.
