Cubs All-Star shortstop Starlin Castro has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman last fall, according to CBS Chicago.

The woman, reportedly in her 20s, said she was drinking with friends late last September when she and a friend left the bar and went to Castro's apartment at 3 a.m. She reportedly blacked out and then was allegedly being sexually assaulted by Castro when she came to. The police report, according to CBS Chicago, says the woman remembers screaming when she woke up at 5:30 a.m., yelled at Castro and left immediately. The alleged victim then filed a police report 12 hours later.

The Cubs have released the following statement:

“We are aware that a police report was filed regarding an incident involving Starlin, but we have received limited information. While this is something we take very seriously, there is not enough information to make any further comment or take action at this time. We are hopeful when the facts are brought to light, Starlin will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”

Castro's attorneys have released the following statement:

"We are aware of certain allegations that have been made against our client, Starlin Castro. We have thoroughly investigated this matter, and we are confident that these allegations are baseless. Given the sensitive nature of this matter, we cannot comment any further."

Castro, 21, has yet to be interviewed by police because he flew back to his home in the Dominican Republic, as scheduled, the very day the accuser filed her police report -- which was September 29, the day after the Cubs' season ended.

Let me get this straight! This chick is clubbing it til 3A.M., goes to this guys crib, snoozes for a few hours, then starts screaming when this Cub was waking her up. When reporters asked Mr. Castro about the incident @ his home in the Dominican. The all-Star shortstop responded, " Ah Carumba! That girl was muy loca. And too gorda. Por Favor! Por Favor! Cree en mi!"

Report: Starlin Castro accused of sexual assault

Seriously?  You leave a bar at 3 a.m. and go back home with a guy to his apartment, what's he supposed to think?  You don't want to have sex with the guy then at 3 a.m., when you leave the bar, you just smile sweetly, say I had a fun time, here's my number, give me a call and then you grab the first cab that rolls along and go home.  Way too much of a he said, she said kind of situation to figure out who is telling the truth in this one but if charges are ever filed would anyone be at all surprised when this winds up with a cash settlement being paid to the woman and all charges being dropped.
