West Ham And Former Manchester United Midfielder Ravel Morrison Charged With Assault On Two Women

The 21-year-old has been charged by police.

West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison has been charged by police for the assault of two women, reports the BBC.

The former Manchester United youth player is accused of attacking a 19-year-old woman outside a bar in Manchester in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Morrison is then said to have re-assaulted the woman and a second victim, aged 39, in Salford, hours after the first incident.

“At about 3.20am on Sunday police were called to an address on Alexandra Road, Peel Green, Salford, following reports a 19-year-old woman and a 39-year-old woman had been assaulted,” a spokesperson for the Greater Manchester Police said.

“Officers attended and established the young woman had also been assaulted outside a bar in Manchester city centre earlier that evening and a 21-year-old man was subsequently arrested at a later date.”

Morrison joined the Hammers in January 2012 for £650,000 from Old Trafford after then manager Sir Alex Ferguson decided the youngster was too much trouble and has since spent time on-loan with Birmingham City and QPR.

In 2011 the Englishman pleaded guilty to two counts of witness intimidation and in the same year the midfield ace was advised to seek counselling after he was charged with attacking his then girlfriend.

The 21-year-old is due to be seen in Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court later today.
