A man who lives with Browns players David Njoku and Rashard Higgins was accused of sexual assault by a 22 year old woman. She thought she was having sex with one of the players.
A 22-year-old woman accused the friend of a Cleveland Browns player of sexually assaulting her at two Browns players' apartment at The 9 in downtown Cleveland.
She believed she was having sex with one of the players, police reports say.
Neither Browns player -- tight end David Njoku and wide receiver Rashard Higgins-- was in the room at the time, and neither is accused of any wrongdoing.
Njoku's friend, Kashwayne Nelson, who records say lives with both Njoku and Higgins, was arrested on suspicion of rape but ultimately was released from the jail. No charges have been filed in connection with the sexual assault.
The story is the woman had been hanging out with Rashard Higgins and fell asleep in his bed. He left and the friend, Kashwayne Nelson, entered the room with the lights out and started to have sex with the young lady.
Something isn't adding up here. There might be a little bit more to this than is being revealed. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this had gone down before.
The Browns are aware of the incident and released a statement.
"Rashard immediately notified us of the situation and he and David fully cooperated with the police while being interviewed," the statement said. "While our players were not the target of any allegations involving illegal activity, they understand the seriousness of the situation and we have expressed our concerns regarding the matter."
