In her account posted on Twitter, Bissen wrote that the autograph-signing event occurred at a store where she was a volunteer.
Sano is listed at 6-foot-4, 260 pounds and Bissen said trying to fend him off left her, "sore all over from having to fight off this athlete that thought he was entitled to take advantage of me against my will". It hurt, how badly he was grasping at my wrist, but he wouldn't let go. He finally gave up after a solid ten mins of fighting to pull me thru that door.
'He then leaned down and exhausted to kiss me, more than once, ' she continued. "When I said no, it should have been the end of it". She said the struggle lasted for 10 minutes, and her screams for help went unanswered.
"I unequivocally deny the allegation made against me today - it never happened", Sano said in the statement. "Until more information is gathered, the Twins will have no further comments". Her ending said: "Every time I have to hear about how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how very bad he actually is and how he hurt me".
Major League Baseball officials "are aware of the allegations and are now in the process of looking into it", a league spokesman said in a statement. Bissen wrote that she "didn't want to cause a scene" so she walked with them to the store.
Twins third baseman Miguel Sano has been accused of sexual assault by a local photographer. "There is no place for it in our society".
Bissen said that after the signing session ended, Sano decided he wanted to go to an Apple outlet at the mall.
The Twins weren't informed of the incident at the time, according to Bissen.
"I'm so sorry about this". In doing so, she joined the ranks of women who have come come forward to tell of their own experiences with powerful men and misconduct under the hashtag term #metoo. However, Bissen wrote that her decision to come forward was unrelated to any potential roster moves the Twins are considering. 'I understand why you didn't, but I wish you would have come to me'.
Bissen said the athlete "didn't rape" her "but he sure did assault me". Hopefully the team does not take these allegations any less seriously because of his success on the field or contract situation. The 24-year-old was named an All-Star in 2017 en route to finishing the season with 28 home runs, 77 RBIs and an.859 OPS.
