A western New York police department confirmed Friday it’s investigating a situation involving Patrick Kane but didn’t reveal much more than that.
Hamburg, N.Y., police chief Greg Wickett released a formal statement Friday morning, confirming the investigation into an alleged incident at the residence of the Chicago Blackhawks star.
Here is the full statement:
“The Town of Hamburg Police Department is investigating an incident that allegedly occurred at the residence of NHL player Patrick Kane last weekend.
“At this time, we are gathering information and awaiting forensic testing results.
“We will have no further comment on this investigation at this time.”
According to multiple reports that surfaced Thursday, Kane is being investigated for an alleged rape. The Buffalo News reported Thursday afternoon that the alleged victim went to the hospital, where a rape kit was performed. Both the NHL and Blackhawks released statements acknowledging they were aware of the investigation but offered no other comment on the matter.
