The current case against Boateng is still in the intermediary stages with further investigations into the allegations being conducted by order of the judge.
Boateng’s representatives suggested that the accusations are based on unproven claims from a third party, though details remain unknown.
Police are also looking into a separate incident of suspected assault against Senler involving Bayern defender Boateng.

The two have been dating since 2007 but have had a stormy relationship which has seen them separate on numerous occasions.
The pair’s break up in 2011 – the same year their twins Soley and Lamia were born – was so acrimonious they only communicated through their lawyers.
Boateng and Senler, a former fashion student, rekindled their love in 2013 and got engaged the following year but are understood to have split again. The case continues.
