Saturday was Patrick Kane’s scheduled day with the Stanley Cup. He had planned to bring it to Sky Bar, a downtown Buffalo rooftop club, to celebrate. Those plans changed when Kane became the subject of a rape investigation, accused by a woman he reportedly met at Sky Bar the week before.
The Buffalo News has more details on the alleged events of the early morning of Aug. 2, including specific claims reportedly made by the accuser. Via “sources close to the investigation,” the woman told police that she and a friend met Kane at Sky Bar before he invited them back to his lakefront home for a private party.
Shortly after she and her friend arrived at Kane’s home on Old Lakeshore Road, the accuser alleges that she went by herself into another room, where Kane followed her, overpowered her and raped her, the sources said.
According to the News’ sources, the woman called a relative immediately after the attack. She then went to a hospital for examination, including a rape kit.
Sources with knowledge of the investigation said that the young woman who has accused the hockey superstar of rape had bite marks on her shoulders and a scratch on her leg after the alleged attack.
Police were called, and Kane’s home was searched the next day.
