SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree is being investigated in connection with a sexual assault, San Francisco police said Friday.
Crabtree was questioned in connection with the alleged incident, reported to have occurred in the early morning hours Sunday in an unnamed San Francisco hotel, police said in a news release.
Crabtree caught two touchdown passes in the 49ers' playoff victory over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night.
Police said Crabtree has been interviewed with his lawyer present and has cooperated in the investigation. Crabtree has not been detained or arrested and has agreed to make himself available to investigators in the future, police said.
In a statement released by the 49ers, general manager Trent Baalke said: "We are aware of the allegation against Michael and understand that he has fully cooperated with authorities. The 49ers take such matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time as the legal process is ongoing."
The investigation is not expected to impact Crabtree's availability for the NFC Championship game Sunday against the host Atlanta Falcons.
When the investigation is completed, it will be presented to the District Attorney's Office for review. Authorities didn't release any further details.
