Callum Hudson-Odoi, the emerging Chelsea FC superstar and England national football team star was arrested on Sunday after allegations of raping a model that he invited in his home, in addition to violating the COVID-19 lock down restrictions in the UK. He is now out on bail but is to return to the police mid-June.
Hudson-Odoi, who tested positive for novel Coronavirus back in March, recently made a full recovery. According to reports, he had invited a woman to his penthouse in South-West London on Saturday evening, whom he had met online and exchanged some provocative texts.
As reported by a neighbour, the woman, who arrived by 8pm in the evening, was a ‘glamorous’ model and ‘the sort of girl you’d see on Love Island.’ She had arrived at Hudson-Odoi’s residence on a vehicle arranged by him.
“She had very posh Louis Vuitton luggage with her,” the neighbour added.
Before the break of dawn, a call was made to the Police and Ambulance services, who arrived at the scene, and arrested the Chelsea star on suspicions of rape. The woman who joined Hudson-Odoi, was taken to hospital after she felt unwell.
“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,” a Police spokesperson said.
Following Hudson-Odoi’s bail, a friend has reported that the 19 year old has denied the allegation against him. Chelsea has made no comments on the matter yet.
Hudson-Odoi, a Chelsea youth product, joined the senior team in 2017. The winger has made 29 appearances across all competitions for the Blues, scoring once. He has also earned 3 caps for England.
The youngster was the first Premier League footballer to contract COVID-19. After three weeks of treatment, he was confirmed to have been cured in April.
“I am feeling perfect I had the virus which has cleared now. I fully feel good, I feel fit, so I am feeling back to myself, so it is all good,” Hudson-Odoi said last month.
