Chester Magistrates’ Court verbally confirmed the news to CNN and said Mendy would remain in custody until the next trial date, September 10.
Mendy, 27, spoke in court to confirm his name, address and date of birth.
On Thursday, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the alleged events took place in Cheshire, north-west England, between October 2020 and August 2021 and involved three plaintiffs over the age of 16.
“Mendy, of Withinlee Road, Prestbury, has been taken into police custody and will appear in Chester Magistrates’ Court on Friday August 27, 2021,” the CPS statement read.
In a statement posted on the club’s website, Manchester City said Mendy “has been suspended pending investigation”.
“The case is the subject of legal proceedings and the Club is therefore unable to make any further comments until these proceedings are completed,” the statement said.
CNN has contacted representatives for Mendy but has yet to receive a response.
