NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Police Department released a report Friday detailing the rape allegation against former NFL safety Darren Sharper.

Sharper has not been arrested or charged for the alleged crime, and the case remains under investigation. However, Sharper was arrested last week in Los Angeles on an unrelated charge of suspicion of rape in two separate alleged incidents.

According to the NOPD report, an unnamed woman alleged that Sharper raped her on the morning of Monday, Sept. 23, after they met at a bar and he took her to his apartment in the Central Business District. According to the report, which was made on the morning of Sept. 24, the accuser stated that she consumed a large amount of alcohol at a couple of bars. She said she met Sharper at one of the bars, then he later took her to his apartment and sexually assaulted her. She said she did not consent to any sexual encounter.

Last week, Sharper was arrested, booked and released on $200,000 bail in Los Angeles. The LAPD said it is investigating Sharper in connection with two sexual assaults that occurred in the West Los Angeles area, one in October and one this month.

Sharper was a five-time Pro Bowler who spent his career with the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints before retiring after the 2010 season. He works as an analyst for NFL Network, though he has been suspended without pay.
