Sandoval Probed for Sexual Assault

Alleged incident occurred early Friday morning in Santa Cruz County. Sandoval has not been arrested or detained.

San Francisco Giants player Pablo Sandoval is under investigation in connection with a sexual assault that allegedly occurred in Aptos Friday morning, a Santa Cruz County sheriff's spokeswoman said today.

The sheriff's office received a complaint of a sexual assault at 4:25 a.m. Friday morning, spokeswoman Deputy April Skalland said.

The victim told deputies a small group of people met in downtown Santa Cruz Thursday night, and then went to a resort in Aptos where the incident allegedly occurred.

Sandoval, 25, was named as the suspect in the complaint. On Friday sheriff's officials interviewed the baseball player with his attorney, Skalland said. He has not been detained nor arrested.

"He was cooperative," she said.

Calls to Sandoval's lawyer and the Giants offices were not returned today.
