Betsy Bissen accused Sano on Thursday in a tweet, saying what he did amounted to assault.

Bissen works as a photographer for publications including TwinsDaily. She said she had long been afraid to tell her story for fear of losing access to shoot Twins games. She says she screamed and resisted Sano until he gave up.

Sano denies the allegations. The Twins say they take the allegations seriously but made no other comment.

Bissen didn’t respond to phone, email and social media messages from The Associated Press seeking an interview.
