Minnesota Twins Star Miguel Sano Accused of Sexual Assault By Photographer

Photographer: Miguel Sano 'didn't rape me, but he sure did assault me'

Earlier on Thursday a woman by the name of Betsy Bissen accused Minnesota Twins All-Star Miguel Sano of sexually assualting her following an autograph signing session.

After an autograph signing at a store in which Bissen says she volunteers, Sano allegedly insisted that she join him, his agent, and her employer at the nearby Apple store.

'Every time I have to hear about how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how bad he actually is and how he hurt me, ' wrote Betsy Bissen, whose Twitter bio lists her as a photographer for the blog TwinsDaily.com in addition to a role with the minor league St. Paul Saints. Bissen described a struggle with Sano, who was grasping her wrist, as he "leaned down and tried to kiss me, more than once".

'He then leaned down and exhausted to kiss me, more than once, ' she continued.

". Every time I have to hear how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how bad he actually is and how he hurt me". She says she was in a squatted position with her wrist throbbing because she was resisting Sano's repeated attempts, and nobody was there to help her.

Bissen wrote that Sano "finally gave up after a solid ten mins of fighting to pull me thru that door".

"I unequivocally deny the allegation made against me today - it never happened", Sano said in the statement.

The Twins said in a statement that the team takes the allegations "very seriously".

"Every time I have to hear about how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how bad he actually is and how he hurt me", she concluded.

"We are aware of the allegations and are now in the process of looking into it, " Major League Baseball spokesman Mike Teevan said in a statement.


Neither the Twins, Sano nor Major League Baseball have yet responded to Bissen's story.

"No, he didn't rape me, but he sure did assault me", she writes.

In a separate Twitter post, Bissen said, "I want nothing more than to feel free of this burden I've carried with me since 2015".

"Every time I have to hear how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how bad he actually is and how he hurt me", Bissen wrote.

MLB Trade Rumors reported tit contacted Bissen and asked if she would cooperate with MLB if the organization attempted to contact her and she said yes.

Current and former Twins players reacted on Twitter to the news.

'I'm so sorry about this, ' he wrote. Let me assure you, I don't.

Bissen, who declined a request for comment through the St. Paul Saints, posted the message as part of the #MeToo movement of women sharing stories of sexual misconduct against them.

Sano, 24, is coming off a 2017 season in which he hit.264 with 28 home runs, 77 runs batted in and was named to the American League All-Star team for the first time.
