Chelsea forward, Callum Hudson-Odoi was arrested in the early hours of Sunday after a model he met online and invited to his home claimed she was raped at his apartment in West London.
The 19-year-old was said to have asked the unnamed model to visit him wearing lingerie. It is believed that he made contact with her on social media on Saturday before inviting her to his penthouse.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that an arrest had been made at Hudson-Odoi’s west London apartment after being called by the woman. An ambulance also attended the scene.
The 19-year-old footballer was arrested by officers and taken into police custody before being released on bail. A police spokesman said:
“Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday, 17 May to a report of an unwell woman.
“When emergency services attended, a woman reported that she was raped. She was taken to hospital.
“A man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of rape. He was released from custody and bailed to return on a date in mid-June.”
The police returned to Hudson-Odoi’s property on Sunday to continue their investigations into the matter.
When asked by MailOnline about the charges, a representative of Hudson-Odoi, said that he was speaking on the player’s behalf:
“He says he’s innocent. That’s all you need to know. He’s innocent, he hasn’t done anything wrong. We’ve got no other comment to make.”
Sunday’s alleged rape incident comes just weeks after Hudson-Odoi battled the coronavirus which he was diagnosed with on March 12, 2020.
