Barwin issues statement, says he 'has no knowledge' of alleged Agholor incident

Eagles NFL

It has been reported that Connor Barwin and Fletcher Cox were the other two players present at Cheerleaders Gentlemen's Club on Thursday afternoon for the alleged incident involving teammate Nelson Agholor. A 27-year-old dancer told police she was raped by a member of the Eagles inside the club around 3 p.m. on Thursday, police said.

Barwin released an official statement to some writers that cover the Eagles, saying that he left well before 3 p.m.:

As a result of my name being mentioned in conjunction with this alleged incident, I would like to clarify that I was only present at the establishment for a very short period of time and have no knowledge about anything that happened after I left the establishment. I stopped by there for about a half hour to meet my teammates, and left around 2:30 p.m.

Attorney Fortunato Perri Jr., who is now representing Agholor, said that "Nelson has not been involved in any criminal conduct whatsoever."
