The woman who accused Blackhawks star Patrick Kane of sexually assaulting her is no longer cooperating with the investigation, The Buffalo News is reporting.

Kane has not been charged in the case.

 

The woman contacted police on Aug. 2 after meeting Kane in downtown Buffalo and returning to his home. The woman said Kane attacked her when they were alone.

Kane refused to directly address the report today.

"No. You know, it's the same as ... like I said the other day," Kane said. "There's really no comment to be made, so I'm not going to say anything right now. If you guys have any questions about the game last night or the game coming up against St. Louis I'll answer those."

The case took a bizarre turn on Sept. 23, when the attorney representing the accuser claimed that evidence had been tampered with. Thomas J. Eoannou, who was representing the accusser, quit the case the next day.

On Sept. 25, Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita said that an evidence bag purportedly found by the mother of Kane's accuser was an "elaborate hoax" created by the mother.
