Young Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was arrested at 4am on Sunday due to alleged charges of rape, the Metropolitan Police has confirmed.

The 19-year-old has been released on bail and is due to return to a police station in June.

The academy product met the unnamed woman online before sending a vehicle to pick her up, thus breaking the lockdown restrictions. Things turned sour after the woman rang the police and an ambulance, with the police appearing at Hudson-Odoi’s apartment.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson 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.”

Chelsea as well as Hudson-Odoi are yet to comment on the incident.
