NEW YORK: Police are reportedly investigating an attempted rape accusation against New York Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley stemming from an incident early on Saturday morning (Sunday in Manila).
The New York Daily News and New York Post said Bromley, a 23-year-old defensive tackle who made 36 tackles in 16 games for the Giants this past season, is accused of trying to rape a 26-year-old woman and hitting her with his car while fleeing a hotel room.
Reports said the two met online and Bromley picked up the woman at her home and took her to a Manhattan hotel, where Bromley is accused of trying to rape her when she did not want to have sex.
She then demanded a ride home and he refused and departed. She followed him out of the hotel and jumped onto his car as he tried to depart, according to the newspapers.
No charges have been filed in the case.
The Giants said they were monitoring the case and had reported it to NFL officials.
“We are aware of the situation and will continue to monitor it,” the team said in a statement.
“We have notified the league office per the league’s protocol. “
