The police report from the incident for which Browns’ offensive line coach Andy Moeller has been indefinitely suspended by the team cites “conflicting stories” and says the alleged victim “had no visible injuries” after she told police she’d been assaulted by Moeller in his home on Eastland Rd. in Berea last Saturday night.

At about midnight last Sunday, three hours after the initial call, the victim told police she wished to pursue charges and had an injury from the incident that was not immediately visible.

The report states that at about 7:55 a.m. Sunday, police were called to a hotel in nearby Middleburg Heights where they’d taken the victim, and at that time she said she wanted to drop the assault charge. She was informed that the original complaint would be forwarded to the prosecutor.

This Cleveland.com story that contains a copy of the police report said Berea prosecutor Jim Walters is in the process of determining if charges will be filed.

The woman was not named in the police report. Moeller’s name was redacted because he has not been charged.

The Browns’ day-to-day headquarters can be accessed off of Eastland Rd. in Berea, a suburb about 15 miles southwest of Downtown Cleveland.

A team statement Monday said the Browns had suspended Moeller after allegations the team “takes very seriously.” Moeller was in the building and met with players briefly Monday, the players’ first day at work since the incident, before leaving.
