Dani Alves, a 39-year-old soccer player, was recently taken into custody by Catalan police following a complaint filed by a woman on January 2nd.

The complaint alleged that Alves had touched her inappropriately at a popular Barcelona nightclub during the night of December 30th to December 31st.

A spokesperson for Catalonia’s regional police force, the Mossos d’Esquadra, stated that Alves will now be questioned by a judge. Spanish media reports indicate that the player is accused of putting his hands down the woman’s pants during the alleged incident.

Alves, 39, has confirmed he was at the night club at the time but has denied any wrongdoing, telling private Spanish television Antena 3 earlier this month that he has “never seen” the woman before.

“I was there, at that place, with more people having fun. Everybody knows I love to dance. Having a good time but without invading the space of others,” the former Barcelona and Juventus player added.

Alves, who now plays for Mexican side Pumas UNAM, was in Barcelona on holiday following his participation at the World Cup with Brazil in Qatar.

A Barcelona court said earlier this month it had opened a probe “into an alleged crime of sexual assault as a result of a complaint filed by a woman against a footballer”.
