FC Barcelona Legend Dani Alves Arrested For Alleged Sexual Abuse

FC Barcelona legend Dani Alves has been arrested after he was accused of sexual abuse in late 2022.

On Friday morning, the Brazilian went to testify at a police station near Lescote near Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium.

He was caught in a police van after being arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse shortly after 10am According to media reports, such as Handle.

Mossos d’Esquadra Catalan police took the 39-year-old to the Ciutat de la Justicia in Barcelona, ​​where he will be brought before a judge, the source explained to Europa Press.

A judge will then decide whether Alves will be detained or released on bail while his case is investigated.

The case and its investigation relate to an alleged incident at Sutton Nightclub on 30 December 2022.

Two days later, a woman lodged a complaint against Alves, who left Barcelona for the second time in his career this summer after a successful loan spell last season.

A court in Barcelona said in a statement in early January that it had opened the case for “an alleged sexual assault charge resulting from a woman’s prosecution for an incident that allegedly took place at a Barcelona nightclub last month.”

Although Alves was not named, a court spokeswoman confirmed to Reuters that the woman’s complaint was against Qatar’s 2022 Brazil national team player.

Reuters asked Alves’ spokesman for comment, saying the right-back, who now plays for Mexico’s PUMAS UNAM, “strongly” denies all allegations.

In an interview with Antena 3 in the first week of January, Alves confirmed he was at the Sutton nightclub but denied hurting anyone.

“I danced without invading anyone’s space and had a good time,” Alves said. “I don’t know who this lady is…how could I do this to a woman? No.”

In Spain, allegations of sexual abuse can include anything from unsolicited or unwanted sexual groping to rape. Police have so far declined to disclose specific details of Alves’ case.
