Photographer accuses Major League Baseball player of sexual assault

MLB Rumors: Twins' Miguel Sano Developed Dicey Reputation With Women

Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano has been accused of assault by a photographer who's covered the team in recent years. After the signing, Sano grabbed her wrist and forced her to accompany him to a nearby Apple Store. It hurt, how badly he was grasping at my wrist, but he wouldn't let go. "I didn't want to cause a scene, so I just went along", Bissen said in her post. There, through a doorway near the restrooms, he tried to kiss her multiple times and continued to hold her, forcibly and painfully, by her wrist, in an effort to get her into the bathroom with him. This is my story.

"I screamed, no one came to help me", she said of the ordeal. He finally gave up after a solid ten mins of fighting to pull me thru that door. "No, he didn't rape me, but he sure did assault me". He asked where it was and when Bissen pointed at the door, she said, Sano grabbed her by the wrist.

After sending the tweet, the photographer said she had been inundated with messages from social media trolls who doubted her story while noting that she had nothing to gain from telling it. "A married man, around 20 years older than me".

The Twins released a statement in regard to Bissen's tweets a few hours after she posted the allegations.

According to TMZ Sports, Sano denies the allegation, saying it never happened.

Bissen's lengthy Twitter post included the hashtag '#metoo, ' in reference to the growing movement of sexual assault victims breaking their silence about the issue.




"We are aware of the allegations and are now in the process of looking into it", Major League Baseball spokesman Mike Teevan said in a statement posted on ESPN's website.

The Twins and Sano's agent have not responded to a request for comment. 'Their auto was pulled around to a back hallway door.

"Apparently I was too close, and the athlete took that as a signal that I wanted him to grab me and try to take me back thru the door", she wrote.

Bissen, a photographer for Twins Daily and the independent baseball team, the St. Paul Saints, later noted that the Twins knew nothing about the allegations. "Every time I have to hear about how great people thing Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how very bad he actually is and how he hurt me".

"Every time I have to hear how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how terrible he actually is and how he hurt me", Bissen wrote.

Current and former Twins players reacted on Twitter to the news. "During the signing, he kept trying to flirt with me (I didn't reciprocate)", she wrote. "I understand why you didn't, but I wish you would have come to me".
