Twins' Miguel Sano accused of assaulting, trying to kiss woman

Local photographer accuses Twins slugger Miguel Sano of assault

A Twin Cities photographer is accusing Minnesota Twins third basemen Miguel Sano of sexual assault in a post she shared Thursday on social media.

After an autograph signing at a store in which Bissen says she volunteers, Sano allegedly insisted that she join him, his agent, and her employer at the nearby Apple store.

'I pulled back as he held onto my wrist, ' she explained. Bissen described a struggle with Sano, who was grasping her wrist, as he "leaned down and tried to kiss me, more than once. I wasn't going to give up my fight though", she continued.

Bissen added, "When I said no, it should have been the end of it". She says she was in a squatted position with her wrist throbbing because she was resisting Sano's repeated attempts, and nobody was there to help her.

"I don't even want to think of what he may have done, had he got me thru (sic) that door", she wrote.

Bissen wrote that Sano "finally gave up after a solid ten mins of fighting to pull me thru that door".

According to TMZ Sports, Sano denies the allegation, saying it never happened. "Until more information is gathered, the Twins will have no further comments". Instead, he hurt me and kept going.

"We are aware of the allegations and are now in the process of looking into it", Major League Baseball spokesman Mike Teevan said in a statement, per ESPN.com. He then forced her to go to the nearby Apple store with him after it was over, and the incident occurred when they were exiting the building to his auto.

Blink's Doorbells run on two AA lithium batteries that last the cameras up to two years before they're needed to be replaced. Amazon has acquired Blink , a company that makes smart home camera and doorbell products, the company announced today.

Sano signed with the Twins in 2009. "There is no place for it in our society".

Bissen also received a supportive tweet from former Twins player and current Tampa Bay Rays infielder Trevor Plouffe, who was with Minnesota in 2015.

Bissen, who now works as a photographer for the St. Paul Saints, said that she did tell some who are close to her about the incident but was not ready to make it public until Thursday.

Bissen said the athlete "didn't rape" her "but he sure did assault me". In her tweet, she said that they spent the next 30 minutes inside the store before it was time to go.

"Bissen's tweet included the hashtag "#metoo" at the end of it, which has become popular in raising awareness of women's assault and sexual harassment cases.

'I'm so sorry about this, ' he wrote. "I understand why you didn't, but I wish you would have come to me".

Sano, 24, is coming off an All-Star 2017 campaign that saw him hit.264 with 28 homers and 77 RBI.
