    A woman who was with the victim of a reported assault allegedly involving Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane has been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury this month, according to a new report.

    WGRZ, an NBC affiliate in Buffalo, New York, reported the woman is expected to appear before a grand jury on Sept. 8.

    Former Erie County District Attorney Frank Clark told WGRZ it appears an Erie County grand jury will decide “whether or not Patrick Kane is guilty of any criminal conduct.” He also noted Kane could be asked to appear before the grand jury “if he wants to.”

    Kane has not been charged with any crime.

    Several media outlets in Buffalo have reported that a woman accused Kane of assaulting her at his home last month, but the Hamburg Police Department will only confirm that they are investigating an alleged incident at Kane's home.

    The Erie County District Attorney’s office declined NBC Chicago’s request for comment on news of the subpeona, but the Buffalo News had previously reported that sources said investigators with the district attorney’s office met with Kane as part of the investigation.

    Kane’s attorney also declined to comment to NBC Chicago on the subpoena.
