The 21-year-old Chicago shortstop is being accused by a Chicago woman he met last September.

There is a report on CBS Chicago's website Friday morning, originally reported by Mike Krauser of its radio outlet, WBBM, that Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is being accused of sexual assault by a Chicago woman. Here are the details:
She claims that she was drinking with friends at a River North nightclub on the night of Sept. 29 when she met Castro.

Sources say she and a friend left the bar at 3 a.m. and went to the 21-year-old Castro’s apartment on State Street nearby.

According to the police report, the alleged victim said she blacked out.

She told police she came to, and found the alleged offender – Castro, according to our sources – sexually assaulting her.

The heavily redacted police report offers little information.

It says that when she woke up she screamed and yelled at her alleged attacker, and left the apartment at about 5:30 a.m. getting a ride home from her friend.

The article goes on to say that police were contacted, but by that time, Castro had left the USA for his offseason home in the Dominican Republic.

There are no other details at this time. The report says that neither Castro's agent Paul Kinzer, the Cubs, nor Chicago police will make any further comment. At this time, no charges have been filed.
