49ers DE Ray McDonald accused of rape
San Jose police are investigating a rape allegation against 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald.
Police in San Jose, Calif., searched the home of San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald on Tuesday, according to Damian Trujillo of NBC Bay Area KNTV. The warrant was served as part of an investigation into rape allegations against McDonald.
Police received a call Monday morning from a local hospital reporting a woman who had possibly been sexually assaulted that the facility had admitted. The victim told officers that the alleged assault took place on Monday. San Jose police spokesperson told KNTV that a preliminary investigation revealed McDonald as the suspect. Authorities executed a search warrant of McDonald’s home on Tuesday.
No arrests have been made.
McDonald was arrested in August on suspicion of felony domestic violence. His fiancee reported that McDonald attacked her, but the ensuing investigation did not find evidence that such an attack had occurred. No formal charge was ever made. Authorities dropped the case in November after concluding their investigation. McDonald was not suspended and remained on the 49ers active roster while police investigated the allegations.
