Report: Woman accusing Patrick Kane of rape had bite marks, scratch

- The Buffalo News in New York is reporting that the woman accusing Chicago Blackhawks' star Patrick Kane of sexual assault had bite marks on her shoulders and a scratch on her leg.
The New York report says the woman met Kane at Skybar, went to his home with a friend and was followed by Kane into a room where she says the Hawks star "overpowered her."
Dan Herbeck with the Buffalo News says he talked to the owner of Skybar.
“From what he observed at the bar Patrick Kane was acting like a gentleman and there was a young woman who was in his words hanging all over him and was very aggressive,” Herbeck told FOX 32 News Sunday night.
He says the bar owner doesn't know if it's the same woman, though, that is now making the rape allegations.
Chicago attorney Joe Lopez says even though there were bite marks, they still have to be linked to Kane.
“Maybe asking in the next couple of days for a search warrant for Patrick Dane's DNA, now that I know there are bite marks to see whether they recovered any DNA material when she went to the hospital,” said Lopez.
The executive director of Rape Victim Advocates says often in a high profile investigation the case is stacked against the victim and the public shouldn't be judging either party involved.
“Saying that if she went home with him what did she expect and things like he's Patrick Kane he doesn't need to sexually assault someone, which is a really fundamental misunderstanding if what seuxal violence is about, it's not actually about sex,” said Sharmili Majmudar with Rape Victim Advocates.
“I can't see anything good coming of it for anyone, for Pat Kane, for the young lady, for the media or for anybody else, certainly not for Blackhawks fans, it's a really ugly, unpleasant situation,” said Herbeck.
There are still lots of pieces missing to this puzzle and police in Buffalo are not confirming many of these reports, only confirming that they have an investigation surrounding Patrick Kane.
FOX 32 News will know more details when the results of the rape kit are made public.
