Charlton Athletic footballer accused of raping
A professional footballer is accused of raping a teenage girl with a friend before taking and sending naked photos of the victim, a court heard.
Former Brentford and Charlton Athletic player Montell Moore, 21, faces three charges of rape, a charge of sexual assault and taking indecent photographs of a child and distributing them.
He signed a new three-year contract a few days later, but lost his place in the squad.
Moore went out on loan to Burnham and Danish team Midtjylland, but his Brentford contract was cancelled by mutual consent in February 2016.
He signed for Charlton Athletic for the remainder of the 2015/16 season.
In January this year, he joined Maltese Premier League club Hibernians and won the first senior silverware of his professional career when the club claimed the league title.
After receiving international clearance, Moore returned to England to join Isthmian League Premier Division club Enfield Town last month.
Moore and Zoberi, who were bailed on condition that don’t contact each other, are due to appear at Isleworth Crown Court later this month.
