NSW Police have confirmed rugby league star Jarryd Hayne has been arrested over an alleged sexual assault on the night of the NRL grand final.
The 30-year-old turned himself in at Ryde Police Station this afternoon and was interviewed by detectives.
The alleged sexual assault occurred on September 30 — this year's NRL grand final night — at a house in the NSW Hunter region.
The pair allegedly had sex and the woman told detectives she suffered injuries during the encounter.
It is understood the pair communicated through a series of messages on social media.
No charges have been laid and Hayne is yet to comment on the allegations.
Hayne, who began his career with the Parramatta Eels in 2006, left the club to chase his dream of playing professionally in America's NFL.
But his dream ended after one season with the San Francisco 49ers.
