Charlton player quizzed over rape claim
A Charlton footballer has been arrested on suspicion of raping an underage girl in Greenwich.
Jordan Cousins was questioned by Metropolitan police after the 12-year-old claimed the player had bought her a pair of trainers and then attacked her.
17-year-old Cousins signed a professional contract with the league one team last March and has captained England Under 16s.
He had fingerprints and a DNA sample taken by police before being bailed pending further enquiry.
Cousins who is from Greenwich is believed to be insisting he is innocent.
