Marlon King charged with attacking woman

LONDON - Jamaican international Marlon King has been charged with sexually assaulting and then attacking a young woman in a London bar, police said on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Wigan Athletic striker, who is on loan to Middlesbrough, was bailed to appear at City of Westminster magistrates court later this month.

The unnamed, 20-year-old woman was treated for a broken nose and split lip after an incident at the Soho Revue Bar in early December.

King was on loan to Hull City at the time.
