Benjamin Mendy: Manchester City defender refused bail for third time ahead of rape and sexual assault trial

Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy has been refused bail ahead of his trial for rape and sexual assault.

Mendy, 27, who has been in custody for around seven weeks, was denied bail by Judge Patrick Thompson at a 50-minute hearing at Chester Crown Court, from which the media was excluded.

The defendant, who was not in court, is being held on remand at HMP Altcourse, Liverpool.

It was the third bail application Mendy had made.

He is yet to enter pleas to the charges of four counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

The alleged attacks, on three different women including one under 18, none of whom can be identified, are said to have happened at his home address on Withinlee Road in Prestbury, Cheshire.

Mendy was charged on August 26 with three counts of rape relating to an alleged incident in October 2020 and with the sexual assault of a woman in early January this year. He is also charged with raping a woman in August.

A trial date has been set for January 24, 2021.

Mendy was suspended by City after being charged by police, pending a club investigation.
