Antony was reportedly interrogated for five hours at a Manchester police station over charges of domestic abuse brought by his former partner Gabriela Cavallin.
On Thursday, around 4 p.m., a Manchester United security guard was seen escorting the 23-year-old into the police station.
According to reports, he was questioned for five hours and was last seen leaving the police station about 9 p.m.
The Premier League club granted the Brazilian winger a leave of absence earlier this month to investigate charges made by ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin and two other women.
Antony, who has denied any involvement, allegedly phoned Greater Manchester authorities (GMP) and volunteered to meet with them for questioning after speaking with authorities in Brazil.
Antony returned to Manchester earlier this week after staying in Brazil since the beginning of September, when he joined the national team only to be pulled when the charges surfaced.
According to reports, Antony is willing to give GMP his phone in order to assist them with their investigations.
Antony, who joined Manchester United for £85 million in the summer of 2022. He was accused of headbutting and punching Cavallin, allegedly hurting a breast implant in the process.
While Cavallin has accused him of attacking her four times, two other women, law student Rayssa de Freitas and banker Ingrid Lana, have come forward in Brazil to make similar charges of violent behavior.
However, earlier this month, it was reported that De Freitas’ case had been withdrawn at her request.
