The social media message sent to Jarryd Hayne by his alleged victim has reportedly been uncovered.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Hayne’s alleged victim on NRL Grand Final night sent him a message saying “you’ve hurt me” hours after the alleged attack.
Police will reportedly use that message, and a string of communication following, to form part of their case against the fallen NRL star.
According to the report, the 26-year-old woman accused Hayne of physically damaging her during their communication on an online social media application.
Police reportedly believe 30-year-old Hayne didn’t admit to anything during the communication.
The alleged sexual assault occurred at a home north of Newcastle on September 30.
Police will allege Hayne took the woman into a bedroom and ripped her clothes off, without consent. However, Hayne says there was.
Police will also allege as the woman resisted – Hayne bit her so savagely, she bled profusely. She was then allegedly sent to hospital, requiring surgery.
Police claim there are photos of her injuries.
Seven News understands the woman’s mother was home and will be a key witness.
Detectives have also spoken with a taxi driver – who claims Hayne said he’d be back in 20 minutes – as they pulled up outside the house.
On Monday, Hayne was charged with aggravated sexual assault before being granted bail on a $20,000 surety.
The maximum jail sentence for the charge is 20 years.
