When “it happened” — and exactly what “it constituted” was not yet clear.
CBS Philly cited an unidentified police source in reporting that a 21-year-old female filed a complaint that alleged she was sexually assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel in Center City at about 4 a.m. ET on Tuesday.
According to the report, police responded and hotel management is cooperating fully with the investigation. No charges have been filed and the player has yet to be questioned.
Nets GM BIlly King issued a statement that said, “We are aware of the ongoing police investigation regarding a member of the Brooklyn Nets. We will have no further comment until the investigation has concluded. All of our players are available for tonight’s game.”
