Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku and wide receiver Rashard Higgins told police they had no involvement in an alleged rape at their apartment early Saturday morning.

According to TMZ Sports, a 22-year-old woman told police that Kashwayne Nelson raped her after she fell asleep in Higgins’ bed.

Njoku said Nelson is his friend who also lives in the apartment, but added he had no knowledge of the allegations since he was in his bedroom the entire evening.

The woman told police she awoke to find Nelson having sex with her. Nelson was alleged to have then pulled her phone away from her and grabbed her hair when she tried to call 911.
