British tennis player Dan Evans will ‘co-operate fully’ with a police investigation into a sexual assault.
It is understood arrangements are being made for Evans, 19, to be questioned by detectives in relation to an alleged attack in Bath, Somerset, in the early hours of March 19.
Avon and Somerset Police published a photo appeal, asking for three men to come forward, who they believed could assist with their investigation.
The appeal said a woman left a nightclub with a friend and they began talking with two men before one pushed her on to a discarded mattress and sexually assaulted her.
Today, a spokeswoman for Avon and Somerset Police said the men in the photograph had been identified and ‘arrangements were being made’ to speak to them.
She added that Avon and Somerset Police had removed the appeal and photo from its website, as the men had now been identified.
A spokeswoman for the Lawn Tennis Association said today that Evans, who is the third-ranked men’s tennis player in the UK behind Andy Murray and Alex Bogdanovic, will co-operate with the authorities.
