A female photographer who covers the Minnesota Twins claims she was assaulted by All-Star Miguel Sano after an autograph signing in 2015. when he allegedly tried to drag her into a bathroom to hook up against her will. After the autograph signing, Bissen stated Sano recognized her from the games she has worked at.

Today, photographer Betsy Bissen told her story on Twitter.

"I pulled back as he held onto my wrist", she wrote, in a note published to Twitter on Thursday. Bissen described a struggle with Sano, who was grasping her wrist, as he "leaned down and tried to kiss me, more than once". When Bissen pointed at the door, she wrote, "the athlete took that as a signal that I wanted him to grab me and try to take me back through that door". 'Every time he did, I said no and kept pulling back. I was in a squatted position with my wrist throbbing, I screamed, no one came to help me. She said her body was very sore the next day, as a result of fighting "off this athlete that thought he was entitled to take advantage of me against my will".

Bissen says she fought Sano off for a solid 10 minutes before he finally backed off.

"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 posted on ESPN's website.

Kyle Thousand, Sano's current agent, said a statement was forthcoming, but hadn't released one as of Thursday afternoon.

In a tweet Thursday, Bissen said it was hard to share the story, "but I feel I need to share it".

Bissen offered a detailed account of the incident appended to a tweet, which is reproduced below.

Bissen added in a follow-up post that "the Twins knew nothing about what happened to me".

Bissen's post was retweeted more than 1,400 times within three hours of posting, and received hundreds of replies - including a couple from Twins players.

'I'm so sorry about this, ' he wrote. "She included the "#MeToo" hashtag with her tweet, something that has become more common as women come forward to publicize their experiences and the widespread nature of sexual assaults. Let me assure you, I don't. However, Bissen wrote that her decision to come forward was unrelated to any potential roster moves the Twins are considering.

In 2017 the part-time third baseman and designated hitter had a career-high 28 home runs and 77 RBIs for a Twins team that finished in second place in the A.L. Central Division with a record of 85-77.
