Man believed to be Russell Brand questioned by police over further sexual offences

A man believed to be comedian Russell Brand has been questioned by police over six further historical sexual offences.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: “A man in his 40s attended a police station in south London on Thursday, 14 December for a second time.

“He was interviewed under caution by detectives in relation to a further six non-recent sexual offences.

“The same man previously attended a police station on Thursday, 16 November for questioning.

“The man in his 40s has now been questioned in relation to nine alleged offences. Enquiries continue.”

The police force added: “The Met does not identify any person who may, or may not, be subject to an investigation.

“This statement is not a confirmation of any name or profession media may attribute, or wish to attribute.”

In September, Brand, 48, was accused of rape, assault and emotional abuse between 2006 and 2013, following a joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches.

Brand has strongly denied the claims and said his relationships were “always consensual”.
