1/13 Castro questioned re: allegations

WBBM Newsradio reported Friday that Chicago police questioned Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro Thursday night about allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in late September. No charges were filed against Castro.

Castro was accompanied by his lawyer, Michael Gillespie, at Area 3 Headquarters.

According to the police report, the woman was drinking with friends at a River North nightclub in Chicago on Sept. 29 when she met Castro. Sources said the woman and a friend left the bar at 3 a.m. and went to Castro’s apartment nearby. The woman told police that she passed out, and when she came to, the alleged offender was sexually assaulting her. She yelled, and left the apartment around 5:30 a.m. Twelve hours later, she went to a hospital and told police.

Castro, 21, left Chicago on Sept. 30 for the Dominican Republic. His attorneys have called the accusations “baseless.”
