BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo police say Sabres forward Evander Kane has been charged with four counts of non-criminal harassment and one count of misdemeanor trespass after an incident at a city bar last month.
Police say the 24-year-old Kane surrendered to authorities Friday and was issued a court appearance ticket. Investigators say two women accused Kane of grabbing them at a bar on June 24.
According to the reports, one woman told police Kane threatened her inside the club and when outside, grabbed her throat. The second woman accused Kane of trying to force her from the bar.
Kane’s attorney, Paul Cambria, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
In March, prosecutors said there was no evidence to support a sexual assault charge against Kane stemming from a December incident.
Kane has two years remaining on his contract.
