49ers’ McDonald investigated for possible sexual assault


San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald is being investigated by the San Jose Police Department for a possible sexual assault.

Detectives searched McDonald’s home after police received a call late Tuesday night from a hospital reporting a possible sexual-assault victim, the San Jose police confirmed Wednesday.

“The victim alleged she was possibly sexually assaulted a day prior,” San Jose Police Department Sgt. Heather Randol said. “Based on preliminary investigation, detectives secured a search warrant and served it at the alleged suspect’s residence in San Jose.”

No arrests have been made or charges filed.

McDonald, a seven-year NFL veteran, was investigated in a domestic violence case following an Aug. 31 fight with his pregnant fiancee, but the Santa Clara County district attorney’s office on Nov. 10 declined to file charges.

The 49ers stood by McDonald in that incident, and he has started every game this season.
