Dane Bowers has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rape, according to reports.
The Sun says that the boyband singer, who was previously a member of the band Another Level, was arrested by appointment along with another male, aged 35, earlier this week (April 3) at Hatfield police station.
Both men, who are understood to have had DNA samples and fingerprints taken by police, deny the allegation and have been bailed until May 14.
Reports claim that a woman alleges she was attacked in an hotel room after Bowers had been DJing at the Deco Lounge nightclub, which is near Hertford, on March 30. A statement from Hertfordshire police said:
A 32-year-old man from Surrey presented himself at Hatfield police station by prior arrangement on April 3. The man has been arrested and is assisting police following an allegation of sexual assault.
Bowers, meanwhile, took to Twitter today and wrote: “I must have a fucking target on my back!! Jesus crist!! There’s a lot of Opportunistic fuckers out there!!”
After Another Level split in 2000, Bowers went on to work on his own solo career and also collaborated with the likes of Victoria Beckham. He released his last single, ‘All She Needs’, in July 2010.
