The assault was reported to police by a witness to the incident involving the Bootle-born player.
Later that day the alleged victim also reported Carragher to officers who arranged an appointment to interview Carragher.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a 30-year-old man from the Blundellsands area received a police caution for common assault in relation to an incident on Liverpool Road, Crosby, on Tuesday February 26.”
