No charges will be filed against San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree following an investigation into an alleged sexual assault, CSNBayArea.com reports.

Crabtree was interviewed by police after his team's NFC playoff victory over the Packers in San Francisco, but was never arrested or detained. The alleged attack occurred in an unnamed hotel on Jan. 13, hours after the game.

The 25-year-old cooperated with police and two females backed up Crabtree's account of the events, according to reports.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon released the following statement on Friday:

“The San Francisco Police Department - Special Victims Unit completed and submitted a thorough investigation of the allegations against Michael Crabtree. Following a review of all the evidence, my office has determined that no charges will be filed against Michael Crabtree at this time."
Crabtree, a 2009 first-round pick, has emerged as the team's top target since Colin Kaepernick took over at quarterback. He has posted at least four receptions and 55 receiving yards in each of the last seven games, including a nine-catch, 119-yard, two-touchdown performance against Green Bay.
