UW Player Accused Of Sexual Assault

Seattle police are investigating a 16-year-old girl’s claim that a prominent UW athlete sexually assaulted her at a Central District apartment last weekend.

KIRO has the scoop:

The girl, who is from the Eastside, and the athlete had become friends on Facebook, the girl said. They met up Saturday night, which is when the girl said she was raped, according to police documents.

The girl told her parents she was going to a movie Saturday night, but instead went with a friend to meet up with the athlete at an apartment near Garfield High School, according to police documents.

The girl said that once she was inside the apartment, the athlete asked her how she would feel if she went home no longer a virgin. She said she told him repeatedly to stop and that she just wanted to meet an athlete she admired.

The girl was taken to Harborview Medical Center where she was met by detectives from the Seattle police sexual assault unit, according to police documents.

The UW player has not yet been charged.
