LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police are investigating a woman’s allegations that former baseball player Jose Canseco sexually assaulted her.

Officer Bill Cassell said Wednesday that the 48-year-old Canseco was named as a suspect in the investigation.

Cassell says the investigation isn’t complete, no charges have been filed and no arrest has been made.

The department spokesman wouldn’t say where the alleged attack took place.

Word about the investigation became public after Canseco posted information about it on the social media network Twitter.

Attempts to reach him weren’t immediately successful.

Canseco’s spokeswoman, Susan Haber in Los Angeles, says she has no immediate information about the case.

The former Oakland Athletics slugger hit 462 career home runs during a career that included stints with seven other major league teams from 1985 to 2001.
