A Brighton & Hove Albion footballer has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman.
The man, who is in his 20s, remains in police custody, while a man in his 40s has also been arrested in connection with the same incident.
"Two men have been arrested after a woman reported being sexually assaulted at a venue in Brighton, in the early hours of Wednesday (October 6)," read a statement from Sussex Police.
"A man in his 40's and a man in his 20's, both from Brighton, were arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and remain in police custody at this time. The victim is receiving specialist support from officers."
Meanwhile, a statement from Brighton read: "Brighton & Hove Albion are aware that one of its players is assisting police with the investigation of an alleged offence. The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment at this time."
