Liverpool v Wigan Athletic - Premier League

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 17: Raheem Sterling of Liverpool in action with Maynor Figueroa of Wigan Athletic during the Barclays Premier League match between Liverpool and Wigan Athletic at Anfield on November 17, 2012 in Liverpool, England.

Liverpool‘s teenage winger Raheem Sterling was taken to a police station and questioned under custody for allegedly assaulting a woman in the Liverpool 8 area of the city.

According to reports coming in from the United Kingdom, the 17-year-old went into a police station by prior appointment and although he was interrogated by officers of the law, no arrest nor any formal charges were raised against him.

The incident comes just a week after the starlet made his debut for England in their 4-2 defeat away to Sweden at the newly opened Friends Arena in Stockholm, the Swedish capital, which will be remembered not for club-mate Steven Gerrard‘s one hundredth England cap but for four sensational goals by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Reports also state that Sterling’s interrogation took place three days after in incident occurred, on the fifth of November.

An officer from the police force, who cannot be named for security reasons, has said:

“Merseyside police can confirm that a 17-year-old male from the Woolton area was interviewed under caution following a report of an assault on Friday, November 2.

“A 27-year-old woman received slight injuries during the incident in the Liverpool 8 area.

“The investigation is ongoing and no formal action has been taken.”
