The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office announced this morning that it has decided not to arrest San Francisco Giants player Pablo Sandoval in connection with allegations that he sexually assaulted a 21-year-old woman in Aptos last month.
The sheriff’s office said in a news release that its investigation did not turn up enough evidence to warrant an arrest. Sandoval, 25, was being investigated in connection with an incident in which the woman told authorities the Giants third baseman had assaulted her at a resort in Aptos.
The woman filed a complaint at 4:25 a.m. on the morning of June 1. She said she had met a group of people in downtown Santa Cruz the previous night then gone to the resort, according to the sheriff’s office. An employee at the Motiv restaurant and bar at 1209 Pacific Ave. in Santa Cruz said Sandoval was at the bar that night.
In its investigation, the sheriff’s office conducted interviews and collected evidence, some of which was analyzed by the state Department of Justice. The information collected during the investigation has been turned over to the district attorney’s office for review, according to the sheriff’s office.
