"Today the Minnesota Twins were made aware of allegations involving Miguel Sano at an offsite appearance during the 2015 season". After the autograph signing, Bissen stated Sano recognized her from the games she has worked at.
On Twitter, Bissen detailed the assault charge. 'It hurt, how badly he was grabbing at my wrist, but he wouldn't let go. There, through a doorway near the restrooms, he tried to kiss her multiple times and continued to hold her, forcibly and painfully, by her wrist, in an effort to get her into the bathroom with him. She resisted multiple times between screaming and pulling back, and he eventually stopped after about 10 minutes.
"I was in a squatted position with my wrist throbbing".
The Twins said in a statement that the team takes the allegations "very seriously". Her ending said: "Every time I have to hear about how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how terrible he actually is and how he hurt me".
"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 posted on ESPN's website. Bissen wrote that she "didn't want to cause a scene" so she walked with them to the store.
Sano issued a statement Thursday denying the allegations. "There is no place for it in our society".
Bissen said she told people, including her family, at the time, but wasn't quite ready to share with the whole world until Thursday.
Bissen, who now works as a photographer for the St. Paul Saints, said that she did tell some who are close to her about the incident but was not ready to make it public until Thursday.
Bissen's post was retweeted more than 1,400 times within three hours of posting, and received hundreds of replies - including a couple from Twins players.
Infielder Trevor Plouffe, who played for the Twins between 2010 and 2016, wrote to Bissen on Twitter. "During the signing, he kept trying to flirt with me (I didn't reciprocate)", she wrote. "I understand why you didn't, but I wish you would have come to me", he tweeted. How a 200lb man could pull my ass thru a door (I box, so I do have strength to fight back). "She included the "#MeToo" hashtag with her tweet, something that has become more common as women come forward to publicize their experiences and the widespread nature of sexual assaults.
