C.J. Spillman, the Dallas Cowboys special-teams player accused of sexually assaulting a woman in the team hotel last month, may have sexually assaulted another woman last year, the New York Daily News reports.
According to the Daily News, Spillman, who was a member of the San Francisco 49ers at the time, allegedly "attempted to rape a Bay Area massage therapist last year."
The woman reported the attack to Santa Clara, Calif., police, and according to police reports viewed by the Daily News, she alleged that after she gave Spillman a sports massage in her studio, "he groped her and tried to rip off her pants." The police report also has the woman alleging that Spillman pinned her to the floor and tried to "put his penis in her mouth," the Daily News reports.
“He was trying to rape me!” the woman told police, according to the Daily News.
A few days after the alleged incident, Spillman spoke with police and denied that he ever tried to force oral sex. He said that he touched the woman through her clothing but argued that it was consensual, the Daily News reported. He also said that he never pinned the woman down and did nothing "forceful."
Spillman was never charged, but the allegations will be included in the conversation that the most recent accuser's lawyer plans to have with the National Football League's sex-crimes adviser in a meeting planned for Wednesday.
"I will bring both allegations to their attention at the meeting tomorrow because they are serious allegations of sex assault filed with the police," Gloria Allred, attorney for the woman involved in the alleged Dallas incident, wrote in an email to the Daily News Tuesday. "I will also have many questions for the NFL regarding their personal-conduct policy. Are they enforcing it or will they need a video of a sex assault to believe that it happened in any case?"
Neither the NFL nor the Cowboys returned the Daily News’ requests for comment.
