Brooklyn Nets basketball player Andray Blatche was questioned by Philadelphia police in connection with an alleged rape early Tuesday at the Four Seasons hotel in Center City, but was released with no charges filed against him, police said.
The investigation is still under way, but preliminary findings indicate that Blatche, 26, was not involved, Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey said Tuesday.
Blatche may have been in or near the room at the time of the alleged assault, Ramsey said. Several witnesses are being interviewed by police, as well as the woman. No charges have been filed.
After the 21-year-old woman told police she was sexually assaulted around 3:30, she was taken from the hotel at 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to a hospital. Investigators were seen Tuesday removing bags of evidence from the hotel.
