French midfielder Ladjie Soukouna has been with Truro for five seasons after previously playing for Plymouth and UC Creteil-Lusitanos, he has played 186 games for Truro during his time at the club.
Truro City Football Club has announced that they will release an official statement tomorrow after they meet with the three individuals. Both Truro City chairman David Cardoza and Truro City manager Chris Griffin both declined to comment on the situation when reporters approached them earlier today.
The police are expected to take the trio in for questioning in the next few days, with the English FA also yet announce what their approach will be regarding the incident. BBC will continue to cover this story as more details about the incident are revealed.
