Pablo Sandoval Sexual Assualt Allegations: More Details Now Available

On Saturday, reports came out that San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval had been questions by Santa Cruz County Sheriffs in connection with allegations of sexual assault.

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area has more information about the incident:

The woman made a complaint at 4:25 a.m. Friday and named Sandoval as the suspect when she met with investigators, said Deputy April Skalland of the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department.

The woman submitted to a sexual assault forensic evidence kit at an area hospital, sources confirmed. Sources said she reported to police that she was too intoxicated to give consent.

She told police that she met Sandoval in a small group in downtown Santa Cruz on Thursday night and they ended up at the resort where the alleged assault took place.

"We learned he was still there and detectives went there to interview him," said Skalland, adding that Sandoval was not detained or arrested. "He cooperated. He came down to the sheriff's office and was interviewed with his attorney present."

Sandoval has not been charged and the investigation is ongoing, Skalland said. Once it wraps up, the investigation will be presented to the district attorney's office. There is no time frame to complete that process, Skalland said.

After the Giants defeated the Chicago Cubs on Saturday, manager Bruce Bochy made the following comments about the situation:

"As far as that other stuff, you heard our statement. For us, he needs to get ready. That's why he's down there right now.

"We're focused on baseball. Those questions will go to his attorney. We won't have any distractions, I don't care what it may be."

It is wise of both the Giants and Sandoval himself to say as little as possible about this.
