New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose is being investigated by the LAPD concerning an allegation that Rose and two friends gang-raped a woman in 2013.

LAPD Detective Nadine Hernandez confirmed last week that the investigation was taking place in a letter to Brandon Anand, a lawyer representing the woman in a civil lawsuit, according to The Washington Post.

So far, the woman has remained anonymous, but that may not be permitted when the trial begins on Oct. 4.

Rose was traded from the Chicago Bulls to the New York Knicks in June. He did not comment on the investigation during today’s media day and has indicated that he expects to be exonerated in the civil suit.

The woman was a former girlfriend of Rose and claims he and two other men drugged her at a party, then later entered her apartment and raped her when she was unconscious, according to Think Progress. Rose claims the sex was consensual and points out she had coffee with her roommate and went to work on time the next day, which he says is not indicative of any trauma.

The woman, whom court documents are calling Jane Doe, said it took her a while to piece together what happened after waking up the next day and finding blood and used condoms in her apartment. The alleged victim wants to remain anonymous to keep her family from finding out about what took place, the New York Daily News reported.

Rose doesn’t expect to miss playing time during the trial and is not very concerned about the allegations or the criminal investigation, according to the Daily News. At Knicks media day, he said, “I’m innocent. I felt like I didn’t do anything wrong.”
