Cops quiet on alleged Philly hotel rape in room reportedly booked by NBA player Andray Blatche
A statement obtained by the newspaper reads, "The Philadelphia Police Department will not release any detailed information regarding the investigation, nor will we release names of any person or person(s) potentially involved (victims, suspects, witness, etc.). The information given yesterday was very preliminary and early in this investigation," the email said, according to the Daily News.
Information had already been obtained by CBS New York that the alleged incident took place in a sixth-floor Four Seasons hotel suite Blatche had booked for two of his friends. The team was in Philadelphia to play the 76ers Tuesday night.
CBS Philly, citing sources, reported that a 21-year-old female filed a complaint alleging she was sexually assaulted around 4 a.m. Tuesday.
Police told CBS New York that the alleged victim had sex with two of Blatche's friends. The Daily News reported that the woman told police that she had consensual sex with one man and was raped by another.
Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey told The New York Times that Blatche was present in the hotel room at the time the alleged rape took place but that he did not commit the assault. The Times reports Ramsey also said the alleged victim was "so intoxicated... she is not going to be a good witness."
No criminal charges have been filed.
