Neymar accused of rape

Neymar accused of rape

A Brazilian police document says an unidentified woman has accused soccer star Neymar of raping her in Paris last month.

The document which was obtained by AP on Saturday stated that the incident took place on May 15 at 8.20 pm in an upmarket hotel in Paris named Hotel Sofitel Paris Arc Du Triomphe.

The woman, whose identity has not been released, went to a police station in São Paulo on Friday and filed a complaint in which she accused Neymar of rape.

The player's representatives have not responded to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

Neymar, who was transferred to PSG from Barcelona for a world-record 222 million euros ($248.5 million) in 2017, is now in Brazil preparing for the Copa America, which takes place in the country from June 14 to July 7.

The woman told police that Neymar arrived at the hotel that night "apparently drunk, ' and that they talked and 'caressed".

Describing the events which happened in the room to police, the woman stated they both "touched each other but Neymar became aggressive and, with violence, had sexual intercourse against the victim's will".

Neymar's father publicly denied the accusation per Globo Esporte, claiming that his son was extorted over the matter and that the victim allegedly forged evidence. Paris Saint-Germain have yet to comment on the situation.

"It surprised me, it's a really ugly thing and a sad thing because anyone who knows me knows what kind of person I am and knows I would never do such a thing".

The incident comes after Brazil confirmed manager Tite's decision to drop Neymar as captain and appoint Alves ahead of the Copa America. If we can't show the truth quickly it will be a snowball.

It also states the victim was "emotionally shaken and afraid to record the facts" in France, but then made a decision to report the case after returning to Sao Paulo in Brazil on Friday.

Neymar posted a seven-minute long video on his Instagram page that included messages and explicit photos from conversations with the woman on WhatsApp.

He returned to a full training for the first time since Tuesday at the Granja Comary training ground outside Rio de Janeiro. However, they are many reports doing the rounds that he may return to his former club Barcelona.
