Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has been questioned by police over an alleged attack on a woman.
The 17-year-old was interviewed by detectives under caution, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Sterling has not been arrested and Merseyside police said investigations would continue.
A spokeswoman said:
"Merseyside Police can confirm that a 17-year-old male from the Woolton area was interviewed under caution, following a report of an assault on Friday 2 November.
"A 27-year-old woman received slight injuries during the incident in the Liverpool 8 [Toxteth] area. At this time, the investigation is ongoing and no formal action has been taken."
Signed by Rafael Benítez in February 2010 from Queen's Park Rangers for a reported initial fee of £600,000, Sterling has excelled in the Liverpool first-team this season and scored his first goal for the club against Reading in October.
The attacker, born in Kingston, Jamaica, won his first England cap in Sweden last week.
