According to PhillyMag.com, Eagles second year wide-receiver Nelson Agholor has been accused of raping a dancer at Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s club.
Law enforcement has said,
“There was an allegation made against one of the [Eagles] players of a sexual assault that was reported by one of the female dancers,” said Police Commissioner Richard Ross. “Our Special Victims Unit is actively running on the investigation.”
Agholor is expected to be interviewed by investigators some time soon. He has not been charged with any crime.
Derek Boyko, a spokesman for the Eagles statement read,
“We are aware of the police investigation involving Nelson Agholor,” “The organization has been in contact with Nelson and with the proper authorities in Philadelphia. Because of the legal nature of this matter, we will have no further comment.”
Agholor’s agent did not immediately respond to a request for comment. John Meehan, the owner of Cheerleaders, said he wasn’t at the club on Thursday. Neither he nor the club’s attorney, Marc Raspanti, said they were aware of the allegations.
Agholor, 23, was drafted 20th overall by the Eagles in 2015.
