Jarryd Hayne reportedly accused of sexual assault

OFF-CONTRACT NRL star Jarryd Hayne is reportedly being investigated by the NSW Sex Crimes Squad after an alleged sexual assault on NRL grand final night this year.

Channel 9 reports Hayne is the subject of a police investigation after a woman made allegations of sexual assault against him after the pair met up in the Hunter Region on September 30.

According to the report, the woman, who had been in contact with Hayne via social media, claimed she suffered injuries during the sexual encounter with the former Test player and had photographic evidence.

A statement from NSW Police issued to Channel 9 read: "Police are investigating following reports a woman was sexually assaulted by a 30-year-old man in late September. The investigation is being led by detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad. No further information is available at this time."

No charges have been laid and there is no suggestion that Hayne is guilty of any offence.
