JUSTIN FASHANU, the former football player, is being hunted by the police in the United States after being charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old male student.

The teenager claims he woke up in bed after a drinking session to find the footballer allegedly performing a sex act.

Fashanu was questioned and charged but when officers later went to search his flat in Ellicott City, Maryland, they discovered he had left with his clothes and personal belongings, a Howard County police spokesman said. Mr Fashanu moved to Maryland earlier this year to coach with the newly formed Maryland Mania football team. The alleged incident happened on 25 March.
