Nelson Agholor sexual assault case goes to district attorney

PHILADELPHIA -- The police investigation into a sexual assault accusation against Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor has been turned over to the district attorney's office, Philadelphia Magazine reported Friday.

"At this time, we cannot confirm or deny anything," said Jennifer Jones, a spokeswoman for the DA's office.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams will decide whether to file charges against Agholor. Earlier this year, Williams decided not to file charges against former Eagle LeSean McCoy after investigating a nightclub fight involving McCoy and off-duty Philadelphia police officers. That investigation lasted two months.

A dancer at Cheerleaders, a South Philadelphia strip club, accused Agholor of sexual assault earlier this month. Agholor and teammates Fletcher Cox and Connor Barwin were in the club shortly after the final practice of the Eagles' offseason minicamp.

Cox and Barwin released statements saying they were at Cheerleaders but left before the alleged incident occurred.

The Eagles have declined comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

Agholor, 23, was the Eagles' first-round draft choice in 2015. He returned to Florida to be near his family two weeks ago.

It's unclear when the district attorney's office will announce its decision.
