PHILADELPHIA -

Investigators are working to piece together exactly what happened inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia early Tuesday morning.

Police are investigating an alleged sex assault that may have taken place inside a room of the hotel.

Earlier Tuesday afternoon, FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser reported that crime scene investigators were seen leaving the hotel with several bags of evidence.

Police say the alleged sex assault occurred in a room on the sixth floor during the early morning hours.

Police sources say Brooklyn Nets power forward Andray Blatche was one of three men questioned by investigators after the alleged incident, Schratwieser reports.

Blatche participated in a shootaround Tuesday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center as the team prepared for its game against the 76ers. Blatche told reporters he was focused on the game.

Only FOX 29 cameras were there when Blatche went in and out of the special victims unit in Philadelphia around 9 a.m.

In a statement, the Nets said they were aware of the police investigation and would have no comment until it was complete.
