Boston police are now investigating a street fight involving Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor that took place early Thursday, according to a statement issued Friday evening.
According to the statement, a man filed a police report Friday morning stating he was the victim of assault and battery outside the Storyville nightclub on Exeter Street in Boston at around 2 a.m. on Thursday. The man said that Okafor and another man approached his group and asked some of the women for their phone numbers. When the women declined, a verbal altercation ensued, followed by a physical scuffle. The man said Okafor pushed him and punched him, knocking him to the ground and causing a cut over his eye that later required stitches.
Police said they are “actively reviewing” the case and no charges have been filed. Police had said earlier Friday that they would not investigate the case unless someone involved came forward to say they were the victim of a crime.
