A forward for the Brooklyn Nets was questioned by Philadelphia police Tuesday in connection with a sexual assault allegation, the New York Daily News reports.
A 21-year-old woman told police she was assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Philadelphia at about 4 a.m. Tuesday.
No charges have been filed against Andre Blatche, the News reports, and the 26-year-old forward will be playing it tonight’s game in Philly against the 76ers, according to Nets general manager Billy King.
“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,” King said in a statement.
According to the News, Blatche tweeted late Tuesday morning that that he had nothing to do with the alleged assault, writing “Im ok and I didn't do anything jus was n the area when it happened.” However, the tweet did not appear on Blatche’s twitter page Tuesday afternoon.
The Brooklyn Nets moved into Prospect Heights' newly built Barclays Center in September.
