STATEMENT FROM VICTORIA POLICE:
Yarra Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating an image distributed on social media.
The image was posted without consent.
As the investigation is ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further.
STATEMENT FROM RICHMOND FOOTBALL CLUB:
The Club is aware of a photo that has been circulating on social media.
As the matter is subject to a police investigation we will fully assist with their enquiries, should they be required.
At the Richmond Football Club we feel very strongly about the positive role of women at our Club and in sport generally. We are committed to creating an environment where women can thrive and we are dedicated to promoting attitudes and behaviours that are respectful and supportive of women.
As this is now a police matter it would be inappropriate for the Club to make any further comment at this time.
