The charges stem from an incident in which a victim was allegedly tied up, robbed, beaten and held by Semedo and two other men on February 12. The defender and the two other men were said to have fired a gun in their captives direction while threatening to cut off his fingers. They allegedly stole a computer, several watches and £21,000 in cash.
Police also found an illegal firearm when searching Semedo’s home following the incident. It wasn’t the first off-field trouble for the Portugal U-21 international, who was also arrested in November for an altercation in a nightclub. That trial is still yet to take place.
He signed for the La Liga side from Sporting CP in the summer and has managed just four appearances due to injuries.
