Buffalo Police are investigating claims made by two women who say they were roughed up by Sabres forward Evander Kane at a night club in Buffalo Thursday night.

7 Eyewitness News spoke to both women, who wished to remain anonymous and were involved in separate alleged altercations with the hockey player at Bottoms Up on Chippewa.

Both women say Buffalo Police officers took their information. A spokesman for the department said, "Buffalo Police are in the preliminary stages of investigating the allegations."

Here is what one of the women claimed happened:

"He came up to me, gave me a hug then proceeded to put his hands around my neck for a couple seconds - almost losing my breath. Then I got out of that situation and then later in the night he came back up, he pulled my shirt down and said inappropriate things and then later in the night again for the last thing took me by my wrists and dragged me to the back of Bottoms Up, took me to his car saying, cause I was screaming trying to say, 'Stop, stop, stop.' He said, 'You're making a scene, get in my car, you slut.' And then I proceeded to go back to the bouncers at Bottoms Up."

Dave Robida, General Manager for Bottoms Up, told 7 Eyewitness News, "Evander was not involved in any incident and Evander was not ejected from the bar, contrary to what they are saying."

At this time, no charges have been filed against Kane.

This is not his first time having legal trouble in Buffalo. In March, prosecutors said Kane would not face a sexual assault charge stemming from a December incident because there was no evidence supporting the allegation.
