Report: Police investigating sexual assault allegation involving a UW athlete

KIRO 7 is reporting the Seattle Police Department is investigating a sexual assault allegation involving “a well-known University of Washington student-athlete.”
The incident involving a 16-year-old girl took place Saturday night.
According to the KIRO story, the girl met up with the athlete at his apartment near Garfield High School in the Central District. The station reports she repeatedly told the athlete to stop and after the sexual assault “was taken to Harborview Medical Center where she was met by detectives from the Seattle police sexual assault unit.”
The University of Washington issued this statement:
“The department of intercollegiate athletics has learned of a police investigation based on allegations surrounding a current UW student-athlete.
At this time, the university does not have comment on the matter.
Furthermore, neither department officials, nor members of the UW men’s basketball coaching staff or team will comment on the matter at tomorrow’s open media session.
Questions regarding the investigation should be directed to the Seattle Police Department.”
Several calls to UW officials were not returned.
