Was Harry Douglas IV Home A Site For A Sexual Attack?
More bad publicity for an NFL team, the Falcons. First is was allegations of dog fighting. Now it's bad publicity about a party and an accusation of rape at one of the players homes on Hudllestone Lane in Bufford. Gwinnett County police are investigating an alleged sexual assault at the home of Harry Douglas IV, an Atlanta Falcons player. A woman told police that she attended a party at the home of Falcons widereceiver Harry Douglas IV. During the party, she went to sleep in one of the bedrooms. The woman claims that she was awoken by a man who was sexually assaulting her. (That man was not Douglas.)
Police said the alleged victim went to another location and called 911 to report the incident. Police do not believe Douglas was involved in the attack. In fact they don't think Douglas has any knowledge of the incident; however, the investigation continues. The female victim provided the police with the name of her alleged attacker and authorities are looking to speak with the suspect.
After an interview with the alleged suspect, police will decide whether charges are to be pursued.
