Report: Blackhawks' Patrick Kane met with investigators amid rape claims
Kane, who was accused of raping a woman earlier this month at his home in Hamburg, N.Y., reportedly met with an investigator from the Erie County District Attorney's Office, as well as a detective from the Hamburg Police Department. Both the Erie County DA and Hamburg PD are investigating Kane's case.
The 26-year-old star was reportedly accompanied to the meetings by his lawyer Paul Cambria Jr.
Because of a policy, the Erie County District Attorney's Office has not yet confirmed Kane as the subject of the investigation. Hamburg's Police chief simply stated that an investigation is taking place for an incident that occurred at Kane's residence.
The woman who accused Kane of rape on Aug. 2 said the three-time Stanley Cup champion overpowered, raped and injured her body at a private party at his home.
The woman underwent tests at the hospital from a rape examination kit, but the results have not yet been released.
The case is likely to take many months to conclude.
Kane has not yet been suspended by the Blackhawks, and is scheduled to attend Chicago's training camp when it opens Sept. 18.
