Woman cried as she told police Mendy raped her


A woman tearfully told detectives how she woke up with Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy raping her.

The woman, 19 at the time, said she had been drinking champagne with Mendy, his friends and other women in Manchester, before returning to the footballer’s Cheshire mansion.

After going in the swimming pool, she went up to a bedroom at the house in Mottram St Andrew near Prestbury.

She fell asleep in the double bed and said: “I woke up to find Ben on top of me. I was on my period.” The woman said she had sex with him two or three months before that. Mendy, 28, denies rape on July 24, 2021. The Chester Crown Court trial continues.
