Police are investigating allegations that a Philadelphia Eagles football player sexually assaulted a woman at a strip club.

We are not naming the player because no charges have been filed yet.

Officials say it allegedly happened Thursday afternoon at the Cheerleaders Gentleman’s Club in South Philadelphia.

Lieutenant John Stanford gave more details about the case, “The allegations are the female dancer was sexually assaulted inside that establishment. The first step is being able to interview that victim, get that story and the accusations that are being made. It’s very early – very early on. Quite some way to go before you can get to the part of talking about charges or anything like that.”

Philadelphia Magazine reports that the man in question visited the club with at least two of his teammates.

Police plan to interview witnesses and look at surveillance video as part of their ongoing investigation.
