Kristaps Porzingis under investigation for alleged rape

Kristaps Porzingis under investigation for alleged rape

Porzingis was playing for the New York Knicks and had sustained a torn ACL just hours before the alleged attack, which the woman told police happened February 7, 2018, at the Sky building in New York where Porzingis lived.

The Mavericks and Knicks both declined to comment on the matter.

"We are aware of the complaint that was made against Mr. Porzingis on Friday and unequivocally deny the allegations", Riopelle said.

Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis is being investigated in New York after being accused of raping a woman previous year, the New York Post reported on Saturday, March 30. A high-ranking source within the NYPD told Moore they consider the woman "believable".

The woman - who is in her 20s and also lived in the building - told cops the National Basketball Association star visited her apartment at around 2 a.m., and that she accepted his invitation to go back to his posh pad.

"T$3 he alleged victim told cops Porzingis pinned her down on a bed in his guest room, penetrated her vagina with his penis and then got violent".

Lawyer Roland Riopelle said today that the claim against the player was part of an extortion attempt that is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

It remains to be seen what steps are taken next as the investigation remains ongoing. We made that referral to law enforcement in December 2018, and she continued to demand money over the past few months and has now apparently gone to law enforcement on her own.

Porzingis is being investigated by NYPD law enforcement and sources told TMZ Sports that the 23-year-old Latvian pinned her down and proceeded to do unspeakable things.

It was unclear if any money ever changed hands between the two, the New York Post reported.

But he's not expected to play with the team till next season while he recovers from the injury.
