According to Naomi Martin of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, a woman told a New Orleans detective that she met former NFL safety Darren Sharper at a bar and he took her back to his apartment and raped her.
A woman told an NOPD detective she met former Saints star safety Darren Sharper at a bar in September then he took her back to his apartment in the Central Business District where he raped her, according to a police report released Friday.
The report offers the first details about the accusations against Sharper since New Orleans police last week confirmed he was the subject of a sexual assault investigation.
The woman told police she went to a “couple” of bars, where she consumed a “large amount of alcohol” on Sunday, Sept. 23. She said she met Sharper at one of the bars and he took her back to his apartment at 701 Tchoupitoulas St around 10 a.m., according to the report.
There, he had sex with her without her consent, she told police. “The victim stated she did not consent to any sexual encounter,” the report says.
She called the police and gave her statement to Special Victims Unit Detective Derrick Williams on Sept. 24 at 6:30 a.m., the report says.
Sharper has already been suspended from the NFL Network and is still be investigated by the LAPD for two alleged rapes in California.
