De Belin voluntarily arrived at the Wollongong police station around 4pm after being made aware detectives wanted to question him.
Serious allegations have been made against the NRL star by a 19-year-old woman which reportedly took place in the Wollongong area, according to Channel 9's Danny Weidler.
After being questioned by detectives, the star was charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault in company. He is due to face Wollongong Local Court on February 19.
