Rampant sexual assault in the Premier League
Sexual assault, or perhaps sexual assault reporting, appears to be on the rise this year, with three players now charged since the start of the season.
Benjamin Mendy, of course, is the most prominent of these, as he will be tried in January on four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.
Cheshire Police Statement
Benjamin Mendy, 27, has been charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.
The charges relate to three whistleblowers over the age of 16 and are alleged to have taken place between October 2020 and August 2021. “https://t.co/3GLVndSOOe

Meanwhile, Everton were forced to suspend one of their squad, a man in his 30s, due to sexual offenses against minors, with a statement about his club website saying:
Everton can confirm that they have suspended a player from the first team pending a police investigation. The Club will continue to support the authorities in their consultations and will not make any further statements at this time.
Sadly, this was not the last.
Brighton player last to be charged
In a shocking report, it appears that no Brighton star has been arrested “on suspicion” of sexual assault.
The incident allegedly occurred at a nightclub on the waterfront in the early hours of Wednesday, although the player cannot be identified for legal reasons.
