Police open probe against famous soccer player accused of rape

Israel Police opened an investigation into allegations of rape against a former Israeli soccer player, Channel 13 reported on Sunday night.

A woman who was in a relationship with the player filed a complaint to the police earlier in January, claiming a famous former player sexually assaulted her four and a half years ago.

However, several days after the allegations became public, the woman withdrew her complaint.

Now, police have begun an official investigation into the allegation.

The player is a very famous public figure in Israel and has had a highly successful career, according to reports. However, his identity remains under a gag order.
