Pablo Sandoval was questioned by the Santa Cruz County sheriff's department and faces possible sexual assault charges stemming from an incident from Friday, June 1.
According to a report from CSN Bay Area, Pablo Sandoval did not report to AT&T Park on Friday because he was being questioned by the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's department in connection with possible sexual assault charges.
"On Friday, June 1, Pablo Sandoval voluntarily met with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department related to a consensual, personal relationship of a sexual nature that took place on that day," attorney Eric Geffon told CSN Bay Area. "Pablo fully cooperated with the Sheriff’s Department out of respect for the process. We have no further comment at this time."
Sandoval, who is on the disabled list, remained on schedule to begin a rehab assignment Saturday for Single-A San Jose at Stockton on Saturday, Giants vice president Staci Slaughter said.
The Giants had no further comment.
"Given the off-field nature of the issue, we refer all comment to his attorney," Slaughter said.
The report adds that the questioning was in connection to an incident at the Seascape Beach Resort in Santa Cruz County, and that police were not called to the property but were later contacted by a woman. SB Nation Bay Area will have more on this story as events develop.
