Soc­cer star rape probe

The Weekend Post - - World -

PO­LICE have asked Cris­tiano Ron­aldo to pro­vide a DNA sam­ple in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a Nevada woman’s al­le­ga­tion that he raped her in his Las Ve­gas ho­tel pent­house in 2009 and paid her to keep quiet.

The soc­cer star’s lawyer, Peter S. Chris­tiansen, down­played the de­vel­op­ment yes­ter­day. He de­nied the rape al­le­ga­tion and called ev­i­dence col­lec­tion com­mon in any in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice said in a state­ment that an of­fi­cial re­quest had been sub­mit­ted to Ital­ian au­thor­i­ties for a DNA sam­ple from the Ju­ven­tus star.
