BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo police have released a pair of complaints against Sabres forward Evander Kane in which two women accuse him of grabbing them at a bar.

The accusers’ names are blacked out in the harassment reports released Monday. The incidents allegedly occurred shortly after 3 a.m. EDT June 24.

Police say they’re investigating and no charges have yet been filed.

According to the reports, one woman told police Kane threatened her inside the club, and while outside grabbed her throat and tried to push her into his car. The second woman accused the 6-foot-2-inch Kane of trying to force her from the bar.

Kane’s attorney and the Buffalo Sabres didn’t immediately return messages.

Kane was investigated for a possible sex offense in December but prosecutors determined there wasn’t evidence to support charges.
