ESPN reports Hudson-Odoi was taken into custody after police responded to a report of an unwell woman at his West London apartment at 3:35 a.m. Sunday.
“When emergency services attended, a woman reported that she was raped. She was taken to [the] 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 Metropolitan Police spokesperson told ESPN. Chelsea declined to comment to ESPN and other outlets.
Hudson-Odoi, 19, was the first Premier League player to test positive for the coronavirus in mid-March, shortly after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta also contracted the virus. Their diagnoses were among the events that prompted the league to shut down. A few days later, Hudson-Odoi announced that he had recovered from his symptoms and was self-isolating like the rest of his teammates.
