Eagles receiver accused of sexual assault by 27-year old dancer


According to a report by phillymag.com, 2015 first round draft pick Nelson Agholor has been recently accused of sexual assault by a 27-year old Dancer.

The report states a dancer from Cheerleaders Gentlemans Club, which is located near the NovaCare Complex, told police that she was raped inside the South Philadelphia club on Thursday afternoon.

Agholor is said to have visited the club with two other Eagles players who are currently not yet known. Police Commissioner Richard Ross told Phillymag:

“There was an allegation made against one of the [Eagles] players of a sexual assault that was reported by one of the female dancers. Our Special Victims Unit is actively running on the investigation.”

Agholor has not been charged and is expected to be interviewed by Police soon. Eagles PR Derek Boyko told the site the following:

“We are aware of the police investigation involving Nelson Agholor. The organization has been in contact with Nelson and with the proper authorities in Philadelphia. Because of the legal nature of this matter, we will have no further comment.”

The 23 year old completed the three day Mandatory Minicamp for the Eagles yesterday and is widely predicted to have an improved year after some teething problems under Chip Kelly.
