Jarryd Hayne has handed himself into police as detectives reportedly investigate a rape allegation made against the out-of-contract NRL star.
Sex Crimes Squad detectives arrested a 30-year-old man at Ryde Police Station about 4pm on Monday, police say.
It was reported last week that Hayne was under investigation by the NSW Sex Crimes Squad over allegations of sexual assault.
Hayne is being investigated after a woman made allegations she suffered injuries during a sexual encounter with him on NRL grand final night on September 30, the Nine Network report.
Nine said Hayne had travelled to the Hunter Valley to meet with the woman who had spoken to him on social media, and she had photographs to back up her claims.
The NRL was unable to comment when contacted on Thursday evening given it is a police matter.
However, it’s believed the code’s integrity unit interviewed the woman before it was referred to police.
NSW Police said detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes squad were leading an investigation into reports a woman was sexually assaulted by a 30-year-old man in late September.
No charges have been laid.
