Report: Cosby under criminal investigation in Pennsylvania

PHILADELPHIA -- Bill Cosby is under criminal investigation in Pennsylvania's Montgomery County in an alleged 2004 sexual assault in Cheltenham Township, CBS affiliate KYW reported.

Sources confirmed to KYW the investigation was triggered last summer by the release of depositions in a civil case which had previously been sealed.

Depending on the outcome of the investigation, the sources said Cosby could face criminal charges.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman declined to comment.

Meanwhile, in New York City, track official Donna Barrett told reporters gathered at a press conference with her attorney and a second woman who claims she was assaulted by Cosby at Franklin Field during the 2004 Penn Relays at Franklin Field.

Barrett claims she was posing for a picture with teammates when Cosby grabbed her in a "vice-like grip," pulling her toward him and rubbing against her.

Cosby has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing in connection with any allegations made against him.

Cosby's attorneys in Philadelphia and Los Angeles did not immediately respond to KYW's requests for comment.
