Silent Jarryd Hayne reports to police

Silent Jarryd Hayne reports to police

The out-of-contract former Parramatta Eel left Ryde police station and got into a auto with a woman at 1.30am on Tuesday, nine hours after he was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault.

Hayne was placed in police custody on Monday afternoon before being granted bail at 2am on Tuesday morning.

Hayne will face Burwood Local Court on December 10.

Jarryd Hayne allegedly bit his victim.

The woman claims to have photographs to back up her story.

The woman has reportedly claimed she suffered injuries during the encounter and has photographic evidence to support the claims.

An investigation into the incident was launched after the woman was interviewed by the NRL Integrity Unit, and the matter was passed on to police.

Hayne's lawyer Ramy Qutami said last last week he had not spoken to his client about the fresh allegations. Channel 9's Danny Weidler was the first to break the news.

Welfare officers from the Eels are understood to have been in contact with Hayne since the allegations were made and he was understood to have been rattled by the allegations. Hayne, a two-time Dally M Medallist, is one of the biggest names in the NRL and had a magical run to help the Eels to the 2009 grand final.

The latest allegations come as Hayne faces civil legal action in the USA over claims he raped a woman during his time with the 49ers National Football League team in 2015.

While the most recent allegation is being actively pursued by NSW Police, with criminal charges expected to be laid later this evening, the United States case has progressed only as a civil matter, after it was rejected by the District Attorney's Office for lacking enough evidence to prove the crime of rape beyond reasonable doubt.

The 30-year-old stumped up $20,000 on Monday night as a surety and must live in Norwest under strict bail conditions. He is now a free agent in Australia's National Rugby League.

Hayne is now without an NRL club after his season ended with the Parramatta Eels.

Hayne played eight games for the 49ers in 2015, trying to make the conversion from rugby to the NFL.

Hayne now does not have a contract for the 2019 NRL season, with his most recent deal with the Parramatta Eels expiring on October 31.

About three hours later Hayne was charged with aggravated sexual assault - inflict actual bodily harm which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
