A new report suggests the Los Angeles Dodgers may have inappropriately handled sexual assault allegations made against one of their players.
The MLB team received an email from the Hampton Inn in Glendale, AZ, claiming one of their players sexually assaulted a hotel maid in 2015, according to a new bombshell piece in The Daily Beast published Thursday.
“I guess for a few weeks now [the player] has been making remarks and asking her to go out with him,” the hotel manager’s email to a team official, obtained by The Daily Beast, reads. “She keeps telling him that she has a boyfriend and is not interested but he still keeps making comments.”
But the unnamed player kept pushing.
“On Sunday things elevated where she was cleaning another room and he came up behind her and grabbed her,” the email reportedly continues. “She pushed him back and he came back and grabbed her yet again. She told him that she wasn’t interested and that he needed to leave and he did.”
