Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley was accused of attempting to rape a woman in a New York hotel early this morning.
The New York Post reports that Bromley met the 26-year-old woman on Instagram, picked her up at her home and took her to a hotel. The report says the woman willingly performed oral sex on Bromley but that “something took place where she didn’t want it to take place.”
The New York Daily News reports that the woman says Bromley “became violent” and tried to rape her.
Reports say that the woman asked him to drive her home, and he refused. Outside the hotel, the woman reportedly jumped on the hood of Bromley’s car to keep him from leaving but he continued to drive, and she fell off the hood, suffering injuries to her legs. The woman called police at around 4 a.m.
The Giants have confirmed that they are aware of the story but otherwise have not commented.
The 6-foot-3, 310-pound Bromley was selected out of Syracuse in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft. He played in all 16 games last year, with four starts.
