AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Ajax Amsterdam forward Quincy Promes was released from custody on Tuesday, after having been arrested two days earlier for his alleged involvement in a stabbing, Dutch prosecutors said.
The 28-year old Promes was arrested on Sunday in relation to the stabbing of a man in July in a town near Amsterdam.
Prosecutors said the former Sevilla and Spartak Moscow player remained a suspect while the investigation continued, but there were no grounds to hold him in custody.
Promes’ lawyer Manon Aalmoes said in a statement on Sunday that her client denied any involvement in the incident.
