Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has been arrested on suspicion of rape after inviting a glamour model to his flat during the lockdown period.
Hudson-Odoi, 19, was arrested at the scene after police were called to an address in South West London in the early hours of Sunday morning. Officers went to the penthouse after a woman rang the police and an ambulance.
The England star has been bailed until next month and an investigation is ongoing. Chelsea Football Club has since declined to comment on the matter.
According to Hudson-Odoi’s neighbor, the model had arrived at the building about 8:00 pm on Saturday, adding “She looked very glamorous, like the sort of girl you’d see on Love Island.
“She had very posh Louis Vuitton luggage with her.”
The neighbor added: “The place has been crawling with police.
“A spa area on the roof has been taped off but I’ve no idea if that’s the same incident.”
Another resident said: “There have been a few gatherings happening but we didn’t know quite who was responsible.
“There are a couple of footballers in the building but in the early hours of last night it all kicked off and the police were called.”
It is believed the 19-year-old made contact with the woman on social media on Saturday before inviting her to his penthouse.
Hudson-Odoi is thought to have sent a car to collect her for a trip across the capital to his West London home.
Paramedics attended early Sunday alongside the police officers who arrested the footballer. The model was taken to the hospital after complaining of feeling unwell. Police were later seen at the apartment building interviewing concierge staff.
A further five officers arrived at around 2.30 pm in an apparent search operation. Hudson-Odoi, who has played three times for his country, became the first Premier League player to test positive for coronavirus in March.
But he made a full recovery and is currently due to return to action along with his Chelsea teammates when the Premier League resumes next month.
