Brooklyn Nets center Andray Blatche was questioned as part of an ongoing investigation of sexual assault at a Philadelphia hotel, a league source told ESPNNewYork.com's Ian Begley on Tuesday.
Philadelphia police told multiple media outlets that the incident occurred at the Four Seasons Hotel. A 21-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to a local hospital around 4 a.m.
Investigators told NBC in Philadelphia that a Nets player was in the suite but not in the bedroom where the alleged assault took place. The source told ESPN that it was indeed Blatche's friend who is the focus of the investigation. According to the NBC report, the player, a 41-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were taken into custody for questioning.
