The Chicago Police Department said Thursday the investigation into sexual assault allegations against Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is ongoing, and Cubs owner Tom Ricketts said he hopes the matter is resolved “shortly.”
“I really can’t comment on any of Starlin’s stuff,” Ricketts said Thursday on “The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show” on ESPN 1000. “I think you just have to refer back to his statements and our statements, and we just hope it’s behind us shortly.”
Authorities interviewed Castro on Jan. 12. WBBM reported that the accuser, a woman in her 20s, was at a River North nightclub Sept. 29 when she met Castro. After 3 a.m. CT, she went with a friend to his apartment, where she alleges that an assault took place.
