BUFORD, Ga. (AP) — Gwinnett County authorities are searching for a suspect accused of raping a woman at a party hosted by an Atlanta Falcons wide receiver.
The woman told Gwinnett County police Thursday morning she was raped at the home of Harry Douglas after she fell asleep in one of the bedrooms. She told police she was startled awake by a man who was sexually assaulting her.
Authorities say Douglas was not involved and that no charges have been filed against him.
The 24-year-old was drafted by the Falcons in the third round last year.
The Falcons issued a statement saying the team was aware of the report and that Douglas was not involved, and would have no further comment during the investigation.
