Report: Woman Who Accused Patrick Kane of Sexual Assault Had Bite Marks, Scratch

On Sunday the Buffalo News reported new details about an investigation into an incident that allegedly occurred at Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane's New York home last week.

According to the newspaper, the young woman who accused Kane of rape had bite marks on her shoulders and a scratch on her leg after the alleged attack.

The Buffalo News, which cites sources with knowledge of the investigation, reports that Kane met the woman at SkyBar, a rooftop club in downtown Buffalo. The paper says the woman claims Kane invited her and a friend to his Hamburg house for a private party and then followed her into a room, overpowered her and sexually assaulted her.

The alleged attack happened around 4 a.m. on Aug. 2, according to the report. Shortly after that, the woman and her friend left the home, according to the Buffalo News. The newspaper reports the woman then called a relative and went to a local hospital where a rape kit was performed. Hamburg Police were later called.

Hamburg Police confirmed Friday that the department is looking into an incident that allegedly happened at Kane's home last weekend.

NBC Chicago reached out to the police department following Sunday's Buffalo News story. A voicemail message from the police chief said he has no further comment on the allegations.

Kane has not been charged with a crime.

The Blackhawks star has hired high-profile Buffalo attorney Paul Cambria to represent him. According to a photo posted on Facebook, Cambria and his wife were also at SkyBar the night before the alleged incident occurred.

"It's not my custom to comment on rumors and litigated cases in the media. There have been so many false assertions in the media that I've lost track," Cambria told NBC Chicago when asked about the allegations in the Buffalo News story.

Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz spoke about the allegations for the first time today while picking up the Stanley Cup at Chicago Executive Airport. He told the Chicago Tribune, "We're disappointed but hopeful. Beyond that, it would not be appropriate to expound upon."

On Saturday, Kane was scheduled to take part in events with the Stanley Cup, but he canceled all events and instead spent the day with his family.
